This is an important cause for me personally and I am looking forward to an evening of fun at our expense to support the work of the Arthritis Society." Don Mills

“I’m thrilled to be supporting the Arthritis Society in an event that supports such an important cause. And I’m looking forward to sharing with my brother Don the fun that will be thrown our way by people that are very close to us. This is a significant fundraiser for the Arthritis Society and we both love supporting our community.” Jim Mills
