French food and film for funds

Plates of French food to accompany French film were served to guests at Infinitea T-Bar on Saturday evening as part of a fundraiser for École Sophie-Morigeau.

The event followed a successful baked goods fundraiser at the Griz Days Craft Fair.

President of the Association de Parents D’élèves Veronique Roy said that the money from the evening would be put towards purchasing new sports equipment for the school.

Roy admitted that she is still working out kinks of future fundraisers and hopes to put on something more kid-friendly next time.

“It’s difficult to get a babysitter in this area so it’s understandable why some parents may not have been able to show up,” explained Roy. “I think I would like to try something with a kids movie next time so they could come along instead.”

Plates of salade verte, parsnip remoulade and a bowl of chicken and vegetable stew with crusty bread were enjoyed by the adult attendees while a showing of the film Henri Henri played.
