EC Montreal held its 15th annual charity bake sale yesterday. We continue to raise funds for the Shriner’s Hospital for Sick Children. When we visited them several years ago we were so impressed by the work they did and the care they give to children all over the world. There were also so appreciative of our fundraising efforts that we decided to devote our time and money to this compassionate institution.
Yesterday was a full day of giving. We began with our bake sale at 10:30 a.m. Staff, Homestays, students and teachers baked or bought sweets to be sold. We had so many wonderful goodies! They were beautifully displayed and looked too good to pass up!
We also sold raffle tickets to win amazing prizes! A heartfelt thanks goes to all our donors; Le Nouvel Hotel and Spa, Iko Tours, La Belle et la Boeuf, Isagenix and EC English for their incredible generosity. We also had prizes donated by EC staff. We pulled out the names yesterday and will be surprising the winners today!
In addition, our student ambassadors helped us to promote our 50/50 lottery. They have been selling tickets for over a week raising funds for the Shriner’s Hospital. They collected $131 dollars. The winner of the lottery will get half the pot! We announced the winning ticket on Facebook yesterday and the winner has yet to present themselves.
At the end of the day we added up all our earnings and are happy to announce that EC Montreal raised $810.00 for the Shriner’s Hospital! A world of thanks to all the staff, teachers, students, homestays and friends who generously donated!
I am sure our students taking English courses in Montreal would agree that giving feels so good!
