IVDARA raises close to $7,000 for the Grey Bruce Residential Hospice- Chapman House with a highly successful garden tour. The Sun Times Article on Cheque Presentation:
Organizer Ken McPherson presents the coveted Chili Cook-Off trophy to the winning team, composed of Corey McQuigge and Mary Beth Gray, of the Kemble-Sarawak UCW. They claimed to have “higher” support, but we think the special ingredient might also have helped to win it.
All the Cooks provided excellent choices, and the friendly rivalry added to the day. It is recognized that the generosity of the Cooks is what made the event possible. Also, a big thank you to all the volunteers who worked so hard to make the 2018 Great Chili Cook-Off a wonderful community event. On behalf of the IVDAARA Executive, thank you.
On June 25th, IVDAARA hosted their first ever Wine and Cheese tasting event which was held at the Tom Thomson gallery.
All the guests who attended the sold out event enjoyed 6 different wines from Vineland Estates including the ‘Game Changer’ wines made using new technology that uses only ‘perfect’ grapes! These were served with 6 recommended cheese pairings including several exotic cheeses from France and Quebec!
It was a fun and informative evening and a good opportunity to spend time in the company of new and old friends.
