At the table and on the Web, donors receive as much as they give

November 2011

Local entrepreneurs Nicola Morena and Johnny Azzue hosted their ninth St. Viateur Back to School Bagel-O-thon last month in support of Generations Foundation. With their iconic clan present, teachers and staff from various schools were welcomed to the event.

With undaunted enthusiasm, Dawson College faculty bought 74 dozen bagels out of total of 852 dozen (10,224 bagels). Faculty from as far as Châteauguay and Springdale in Dollard des Ormeaux were seen carrying boxes upon boxes of bagels. John Grant High School faculty emptied the shelves and 30 of their students enjoyed breakfast on location. How inspiring!

Lower Canada College alumni, staff and parents are always very supportive of their students, and it snowballs to the communities. LCC parent Sue Silva and students involved in the project brought a trunk full of homemade cakes and local apples to augment our snack program. Marianopolis College will be cooking pancakes to raise funds for our programs.

Our board members are busily chasing funds and goods to stock our shelves for December events, turkey and trimmings for the seniors luncheon on December 4 at the Bonsecours Market, the EMSB Children’s Holiday Party and our Christmas Food Basket and Toy Drive.

At the La Stanza Celebrate our Children Benefit Breakfast on November 25, the staff of local schools, parents and children from St. Léonard and many other guests will enjoy a hot buffet breakfast where toy and other giveaways will thrill children and adults alike.

Our board members, generous donors and volunteers will be there to get the message out: Celebrate our children. It’s worth it! 514-933-8585,
