For more than 30 years, Bill and Arlene Schumacher called Sand Castle Beach in Tiny Township their summer home. When Arlene passed away suddenly in October 2020 – just a few months shy of their 60th wedding anniversary – Bill continued to support the causes they both cared deeply about.

In 2021, Bill donated $14,000 in memory of the love of his life. Bill chose the number fourteen for his gift, as January 14th was the day of Bill & Arlene’s wedding anniversary, and their son Bradley’s birthday on February 14th (Valentine’s Day).

This year, Bill has made another gift of $14,000 to honour Arlene’s memory, celebrating their beautiful love story and investing in healthcare for his entire cottage community.
