Garage sale for Jaedyn raises $3,100

A huge garage sale July 28 in Ladysmith raised $3,100 for the family of Jaedyn Amann.

Plenty of local residents came out to Bethel Tabernacle Saturday for a garage sale for the family of Jaedyn Amann, the five-year-old girl killed by a falling soccer net on July 4. In addition to the $3,100 raised at the garage sale, a tattoo fundraiser raised $750 and an Epicure fundraiser raised more than $1,000. A petition is now circulating to propose Jaedyn’s Law, which mandates that sporting nets across Canada be sufficiently anchored, banning collapsible nets on government (provincial and municipal) operated play fields and be routinely inspected and maintained. A copy of the petition will be at tonight’s beer and burger fundraiser at the Eagles Hall, and people can sign the petition online at www.jaedynslaw.com.
