The next few weekends offer lots of chances to have fun while doing good. The Lakeside Parents Association holds its comedy night fundraiser this coming Friday. On Rock holds its 10th annual wine tasting fundraiser two weeks from Saturday.
“Join us for our taking pride in Lakeside comedy night,” says the invitation sent out for the May 19th comedy night. “All profits of this FUNdraising event will be directed to the advancement and ongoing improvement of our students’ educational programs, their learning environment, bursaries and quality of student life.”
Performers include Franco Taddeo, Pantelis Bigp, Heidi Foss and Derek Seguin. Tickets are $20 and the event takes place at Lakeside. Doors open at 7 p.m. with the show starting at 8 p.m.
On Rock Community Services holds their annual wine tasting fundraiser on Saturday, June 3 at the Marcel Morin Community Centre, 14068 boul. Gouin West in Pierrefond. This year, Portugal is the theme.
Chef Scott Kanasiewicz is in charge of the food and Fred Beauregard serves as their sommelier.
“We’re going to be doing the whole deal,” says executive director Kim Reid. “My guess is we do three whites, three reds and port and we have food matchings to go with each of them. Oh OK. So it’s a sit down deal. The venue is bigger this year, so we have room to grow.”
In addition to the $90 fee for the dinner and wine, the event also includes on-the-spot fundraisers, such as a silent auction.
