All proceeds from the sale will go to Jeneece Place, the home away from home for families of sick children admitted to the Royal Victoria Hospital in Victoria. The official ground-breaking for Jeneece Place occurred on April 4, and it is expected that the official opening will happen on Jeneece’s 18th birthday in January 2012.
