The organizing committee is made up of representatives from funded United Way agencies in the South Leeds area. Agencies such as Gananoque Youth Services, Gananoque & District Association For Community Living, CNIB and Boys and Girls Club all have tickets available for the event.
“The gala is an opportunity for the United Way to meet more of the Gananoque, South Leeds residents and we are billing it as a fund raiser but also a friend raiser”, says Judi Baril executive director of the Leeds & Grenville United Way. “We are grateful for the abounding support from local business in Gananoque and South Leeds, and this year they have come through for us to help make this event a huge success.”
One lucky ticket holder will also win a framed, signed and matted print from the John James Audubon collection valued at $2500.00.
