The FUNdraiser in The Park held on August 8 was another success with over 13 vendors sharing their creations. Two of the popular vendors at the event were Farmina Pet Foods and Angelita & Co. Each vendor doubled their sales compared to the other area markets that they had participated in.
Chrysalis House was the benefactor of over $300.00 in donations from the Stittsville Knights of Columbus! A special donation from our own Dunrobin Distilleries helped to raise the amount of the donation. Plus, an additional $55.00 was donated in the fishbowl and with other online donations, over $400.00 was raised. As with all of the FUNdraisers, a portion of the proceeds is used for the park rental from the City and to provide a pizza lunch to all of the volunteers. Joseph Carbonetto, Grand Knight of the Stittsville Knights of Columbus and organizer for these FUNdraisers said, “Thank you everyone for your generosity again on August 8!”
The FUNdraiser being held this Sunday, August 15 will feature 18 vendors who will be supporting this week’s cause – the Youth Organization for Holy Spirit Parish. The group is hosted by Sean Flynn.
