TD bank organized its 15th annual spaghetti lunch at Manago Vieux Four last weekend, to raise funds for West Island Community Shares charitable organizations on the West Island.
The event had more than 500 guest, 100 TD employees and families volunteering to bring the total fundraising amount to more than $107, 000 topping last year’s numbers.
Roberto Manago and his team at Vieux Four provided the lunch on the rainy Sunday. The restaurant was packed to the brim with supporters who were served spaghetti, salad, bread, wine, coffee/tea and dessert, all for a ticket price of $15.
According to executive director of WICS, Caroline Tison, One West Island resident out of five reaches out for help to a community organization each year. Each dollar directly translates to more hours of intervention.
