CORNWALL, Ontario – Guests who donate to Habitat for Humanity on Wednesday, Aug. 15 at Au Vieux Duluth will have the chance to enjoy an entrée for free from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. 

“Alex (Paradis) has generously donated his restaurant, and his delicious food, and his servers’ time to help support Habitat,” said Leigh Taggart, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity Cornwall & The Counties. “So anyone who makes a minimum $20 donation to Habitat gets to enjoy a wonderful free meal from Alex.”

The funds raised will support the home build in Williamsburg and future home builds.

The event will also feature a silent auction, live entertainment from Bordertown Catz and a casino night with blackjack, a roulette battle and more. One lucky guest will also have the chance to win a trip voucher with Jolly Tours.

“So far we’ve raised $170,000 for local causes,” said Alex Paradis, Owner of Au Vieux Duluth, considering the past eight years of fundraising efforts.

Paradis hopes to make the Habitat for Humanity fundraiser an annual event. He hopes to see about 600 people show up to the night of fun and fundraising.
