A St. Andrew’s Ball is planned for Saturday, November 17 at the Bonnie Glen Pavilion in Alexandria. The event is a fundraiser for the Mustard Seed Project, which was established to celebrate and honour the life of Janet Lynn Fraser, who passed away on September 10, 2016 after a battle with cancer.
Fraser’s grandmother had given her a mustard seed in Sunday School many years ago and Janet Fraser kept and treasured it as her life continued to be a parable of strength and endurance.
The Mustard Seed Project (MSP) has been created to support initiatives that best reflect Janet Fraser’s interests and passions: to assist, inspire and empower those affected by cancer and to annually provide two bursaries to assist secondary school students planning a future in animal sciences. To date, the MSP has donated $3,000 to the Ottawa Hospital Oncology Unit and has donated $250 bursaries to Vankleek Hill Collegiate Institute student Brittney Leclair, and to Glengarry District High School student, Sara Hay.
Entertainment at the St. Andrew’s Ball will be provided by the Torridon Scottish Dance Band, the 2 Paddy’s and the Quigley Highlanders Pipes & Drums. A full Scottish dinner with steak pie and haggis, neeps and tatties and a variety of home-baked Scottish desserts is included in the $30 admission price.
For tickets, call 613-764-1224 or 613-525-3565.
All proceeds will go the Mustard Seed Project. Monetary donations are always appreciated.
