United Way Fare for Friends

September 16, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm

This year, join co-chairs, Clark Day and Joanne Langlois, as we celebrate the 25th anniversary – and grand finale – of United Way’s premiere event, Fare For Friends!

After 25 successful years, and over a million dollars raised, we are bidding farewell to Fare for Friends as our flagship event.

We thank you for your support and invite you to join us for one last garden party – it is bound to be the best one yet!

Relax in the elegance of enormous white tents on the grounds of the Vimy Officers’ Mess on the banks of the St. Lawrence River. This is the region’s favourite garden party featuring culinary delights, wine tasting, martinis and microbrewery beer and live entertainment.

The live auction will highlight one of a kind, can’t miss items that you will want to throw up your hands and bid on early and often.

The silent auction will feature the talents of local potters, painters and jewellery makers, highlighting an eclectic shopping experience specially designed and organized by a volunteer committee.

New this year our silent auction will be online and bidding will start in mid-August and continue until the day after Fare for Friends (Monday September 17th at 4:00 PM).

Early bird tickets are $175. After May 23rd, tickets will be $200 each (with a tax receipt for $100)

New this year – A table of 8 with service! You and your guests will have your own waiter to ensure all of your food and drink needs are met for the duration of the event ($2,000 – space is limited). For more information and to reserve a table, please contact John DiPaolo at jdipaolo@unitedwaykfla.ca or 613-542-2674 ext. 1102.
