Thank you to everyone for entering our “I’m proud of my mom” Facebook contest. We had so many wonderful entries. We truly appreciate you sharing your stories with us! We hope everyone enjoys their Mother’s Day weekend. The winner of our contest is Annalie Bonda, who wrote a beautiful entry about her mom, Leticia. They win the $1500 valued Grand Prize of a $500 shopping spree at Blu’s Womens Wear, haircuts, colour and spa services at Hennessey Salon & Spa and flower arrangements from Bunches. Enjoy, ladies!
Here is the winning entry:
Leticia Bonda makes me proud because she is a simple, humble woman. She relocated her family of 6 from the Philippines to Millwoods. After battling breast cancer she continues to share her work ethic and joyful heart with everyone near. She leads a senior citizen line-dance group in weekly gatherings with her contagious spirit, gives everything to her patients as a laboratory assistant, cares for her 98 year-old mother, and financially assists family overseas with the little resources she has. She gives her last ounce of strength, last penny; last smile to everyone with NO expectation of anything in return.
