On Friday, July 10th, the WIC Foundation hosted an event that brought the WIC community together in person. While respecting physical distancing guidelines, we came together as a community in a way that was unique and heartwarming. We celebrated the beginning of summer vacation under the stars with the very popular Montreal band Freddie James Project at the Royalmount drive-in theatre.
The event was also a fundraiser and thanks to many very generous donors we raised over $10,000 in support of the WIC inspire campaign and West Island Community Shares. Being a part of the WIC family means we are part of a community. And West Island Community Shares (WICS) is certainly an organization focused on improving the lives of those individuals and families in our community who desperately need it. 20% of the proceeds raised that evening will be distributed to WICS.
We wish to highlight the generosity of our corporate sponsors and partners, without whom this evening would not have been possible.
Wishing you all a wonderful and restful summer.
President, WIC Foundation
