Last Saturday, family and friends gathered at the Windham Baptist Church for A Very Sandy Christmas Part 2. Piano students and singers performed to raise money for Raymond resident Sandy Winde who has been battling pancreatic cancer for more than two years.
“It went very well! We raised over $4,000 and had 23 people get their heads shaved!” said organizer Emily Callahan. Emily had her head shaved in a show of support for Sandy. “I am very cold. I've been wearing a hat since I got it shaved!”
Over 250 people attend, piano students played and two former chamber singers sang a duet. The only glitch was that there weren’t enough chairs for people to sit on. “There were people standing in the back and on the sides of the room,” said Callahan.
