We are writing to express our thanks and appreciation for the benefit fundraiser held in Vanderhoof on Saturday, October 8 for the Madison Scott Search Fund, which raised an unbelievable $72,250!  The event was sold out two weeks in advance and we are aware that many people who hoped to attend were not able to get tickets, yet they have supported us in so many other ways.

We are comforted and strengthened by the positive energy, the generosity, and the concern and kindness that the residents and businesses of Vanderhoof and area have extended to our family.  Since Maddy’s disappearance from Hogsback Lake on Saturday, May 28, the residents and businesses of Vanderhoof and area, including Prince George, have responded with faith, love and hope to our every need.

The actions, thoughts and prayers from all of you since Maddy went missing has gone far beyond the scope of friendship and community.  In our minds and in our hearts, Vanderhoof is the Little Town with the Big Heart and Prince George is a city that reaches out to its neighboring communities in need.  Thank you to everyone who has helped us, in a multitude of ways, continue each day to search for our precious girl.

 

 

Love, faith and hope to you all.

 

 

Sincerely

 

 

Dawn and Eldon Scott and Family
