Patrick Armstrong is proud to announce that the 7th Annual Dancing With The Stars of 911 is moving ahead quickly — and you could be in attendance! This year, there are seven great dancing couples from the Royal Canadian Navy, Ontario Provincial Police, London Fire Department, Middlesex-London EMS and CACC! All will be dancing to help donate the defibrillator of the hour – in memory of Corporal Randy Payne, killed in Afghanistan in 2006. Cpl. Payne’s parents will be in attendance.

As well, there will be a silent auction is loaded with high end items to bid on! Currently, the Fund is preparing for defib donations 59, 60 and 61 before the event! If you have never been, please check out www.dwts911.com today and come see what all the fuss is about!
