More than $8,000 was raised for the Vankleek Hill Food Bank last Saturday, July 9, with a full day of music at the annual Food Bank Jamboree at the Windsor Tavern.

Headliners Mariner’s Curse were one of seven performers for the event, which was set up with a large stage and event tent in the parking lot of the Windsor Tavern on Main Street.

Organizers offered up special thanks to Richard Charest and Don Dubois for all of their hard work in organizing and raising funds for the event.
