CONGRATULATIONS to everyone involved with the successful Dollars 4 Dexter fund-raiser for little Dexter Heffernan and his parents Andrew and Lenice.
Kiama folk opened their hearts, and wallets accordingly, to help the Heffernans have some time off work while young Dexter has treatment for cancer.
Organiser Michelle Scotford was overwhelmed with how the event went.
When she first started planning the fund-raiser Michelle was hoping to raise in the vicinity of $10,000 to $15,000.
With final numbers still to be tallied, she said it looked like they would have more than $40,000, something she said she could never have foreseen.
