Realtors in the Greenwood area are coming together to support one of their own by holding a fundraiser for baby Dalton Morash of Kingston.
Proceeds of a draw auction and silent auction, planned for Oct. 19 at the Kingston Legion, will go towards creating an environmentally-friendly living area for the six-month-old who was born with SCID - severe combined immunodeficiency, also known as “bubble boy disease.” Dalton is the son of Sarah Morash and grandson of Heather and John Morash, who works in real estate in the Kings/Annapolis area.

Dalton, who was diagnosed before his birth through prenatal testing, was recently transferred from a Montreal hospital, where he received specialized treatment, to the IWK hospital in Halifax. He will remain there for six to nine months, or until his white blood cells reach an acceptable level.
Lorna Fulton, who works with John at Century 21 Acclaim Real Estate, said organizers are also anticipating the support of other Valley real estate offices and noted local businesses have been generous in their support.
“The Kingston Legion has graciously allowed us to piggyback on their regular dance night with the lounge available for the silent and Chinese auctions. We think this will work very well for both attendees of the dance and also those who just wish to attend the fundraiser without attending the dance,” Fulton explained.
The auctions get underway at 7 p.m. and the draws will be held during the dance intermission. For details or to make a donation to the event, contact organizers at the Greenwood locations of Century 21, Exit Realty, ReMax Banner, Keller Williams or People’s Choice Realty.
