Warrener and Owen’s “commitment to matching donations played a pivotal role in the campaign’s success,” the foundation said, adding community response was remarkable.

“We are immensely grateful for the unwavering support of our community, our dedicated board members, and everyone who contributed,” said foundation president Mike Genge, adding, “Your generosity has not only met but exceeded our expectations, ensuring that we can continue to provide essential services and support to children and families in need.”

Proceeds will go to Children’s Treatment Center of Chatham-Kent services the foundation directly supports, including social work, therapeutic recreation and music therapy, and ensure more children and families have access to needed supports.
