CORNWALL, Ontario – Over a hundred people gathered at the Cornwall Legion on Friday, Jan. 10 for the annual United Way Italian night.

Around 170 people were in attendance for some good Italian food provided by Casa Paolo and the Legion.

Juliette Labrossiere Executive Director of the Untied Way of SD&G, said that she hoped that the event would raise around $8,000 for the organization, as it had in previous years.

The event had prizes up for grabs including a necklace donated by Pommier Jewellers and a one night stay at the Best Western.

“This event is a great way to give back to the community and support the United Way,” said Clayton Delaney, United Way Board Member and President of Black River Wealth, a main sponsor of the event.

Dessert for the evening came from Dairy Queen Cornwall, and Freshco provided beer steins for the guests to take home.

“This is a great laid back event and a fun way to start the new year,” said Labrossiere.
