About the Tastes of Notre Home “FriendRaiser”
The Tastes of Notre Home “FriendRaiser” was the first main event held by the Fondation Notre Home Foundation. The Board of the foundation invited friends to come and savour the products of Quebec’s terroir while introducing them to our charitable organization dedicated to supporting the vitality, development, and institutions of Quebec’s English-speaking community. This feast of local products and potent potables, which took place on Thursday, June 2 at 6 p.m., was held in the reception room of Sacred Heart High School, 3635 Atwater Avenue (entrance/parking via Dr. Penfield). Five dozen friends and supporters were on hand to sample the diversity of our community of communities and support a good community cause. Considering this a successful appetizer, the board of the foundation is already planning a follow-up feast for next spring.
