CORNWALL, Ontario – The Catholic Women’s League (CWL) held a major first on Saturday, Feb. 10, 2018.
The CWLs from St. Peter’s, St. Columban’s and St. Francis de Sales churches held a chocolate fundraiser at St. Francis de Sales Church in support of the Cornwall Community Hospital Foundation (CCHF) and the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH).
This was the first time that the CWLs in Cornwall had banded together to put on one event.
The event was $15 per ticket to enter, and there was food, a silent auction and of course, a lot of chocolate.
The food was donated by Food Basics, Bulk Barn, FreshCo and the Wholesale Club with many items in the silent auction also being donated by local businesses.
Some of the chocolate was donated as well, but also many of the treats were made by the dedicated women of Cornwall’s CWL.
“This fundraiser is a part of the Service Club Council’s pledge to the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health,” said Christine Hollingsworth of the CCHF. “This is the first time the local CWL has come together for one event. Every little bit helps.”
Frances Odair, President of the St. Columban’s CWL said that the event was a great success thanks to the local chapters supporting each other.
“The CWL are a wonderful group of women,” she said.
