Friends of St. Joseph’s Manor hosts annual barbeque

The Friends of St. Joseph’s Manor held their annual barbeque on Saturday, in support of their new expansion project. Pictured, the new addition to the barbeque was an auction, with the talented Preston Cull leading.
This year, the annual event was organized by the new fundraising committee, in charge of creating new opportunities to meet the goal of raising $250,000 towards the expansion.

Plenty of music and a bit of fast-paced shopping were the afternoon’s entertainment, as an annual fundraising barbeque returned to Campbell’s Bay on Saturday.
Enjoying it’s 4th year, the Friends of St. Joseph’s Manor barbeque saw over 125 people as the event continued to support the facility, albeit in a new fashion.
Traditionally organized by the staff at the Manor, this year saw a new committee take the reins. With the recently-announced expansion project, it was decided that the volunteer committee in charge of organizing fundraising efforts would run this event.
“As president, I’m very thankful for the organizational committee, and the friends and family of the Manor for being here to support us,” said Manor President Denis Larivière.
He continued to explain that the money raised at their annual barbeque has always supported the Manor, but that this year all their efforts would support the new expansion project.
