All the ingredients combined to make for another fantastic breakfast event in Aylmer, Ontario on September 7, 2019. Enthusiastic guests, delicious buffet, competitive silent auction and the opportunity to share news from the frontline of Project HOPE’s work made for a significant and profitable day. The gathering at St. Paul’s United Church was facilitated by the kindness of the church, volunteers and many community supporters.
Neogen – Canadian Operations was the sponsor of the event and Elgin Life newspaper provided incredible coverage featuring Project HOPE. When asked about the impact of the day Christopher Graves, Executive Director of Project HOPE shared “it was amazing to greet so many people and see the response to our work in Africa. The generous participation in every aspect of the event was overwhelming”.
The Share’N Care team at the church catered the buffet while community businesses like Cy’s Bowling, donated packages for the silent auction. Guests were also challenged to support Project HOPE through donating warm blankets and school packages. People readily gave to answer many needs for vulnerable people.
