An Invitation To The Fair...

Welcome to the
Because We Care Country Fair
 information blog!

This fair is being held in honour of Rob Grimshaw who recently passed after battling a very rare sarcoma cancer, Epithelioid Sarcoma. The original plan for this fundraiser was to pay for his alternative cancer treatment costs but now the money raised will pay for current medical bills and funeral costs. Anything extra will go directly into a trust fund for his 2 young daughters. I know Robi felt better leaving his family knowing that there were so many people who loved and supported them. Thank you for your continued support! 

There are lots and lots of fun things planned.
We will give you all the information here.
Thank you in advance and we can't wait to see you at the fair!
