Fool’s Night 2018 – For Eden Food For Change
On Saturday April 7th, over 100 of Mississauga’s finest people met for the 3rd annual Fool’s Night event hosted by the Rotary Club of Mississauga-Meadowvale. This year, the goal was to raise funds for Eden Food For Change, a local Food bank serving western Mississauga. Over $15,000 was donated by the Rotary Club of Mississauga-Meadowvale and the Streetsville Legion, on top of additional funds raised through a silent auction supported by local businesses in the community.
This year we had a number of local comedians and a live band perform. The event was hosted at the Streetsville Legion and there was a ton of great comfort food prepared by the Eden Food bank Chef. There was also a silent auction with all proceeds going to the Eden Food bank.
Stephanie and I had a lot of fun, and we can’t wait for next year’s event!
Special thanks goes out to:
Former Member of Parliament (Streetsville) and current Director of Government Relations for the Mississauga Board of Trade, Brad Butt for all the hard work in organizing the event.
Rotary Club of Meadowvale member David O’Hearn and his band for rocking the show!
