On June 28, 2022, the Local Union held a barbecue for Members at Cavendish Appetizers and Milo Fais in Wheatley to raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada (LLSC).

Over the course of the day, volunteers served approximately 180 guests with delicious burgers, hot dogs, drinks, and snacks, for a small donation to the LLSC. And buns, meat, and produce remaining unused at the end of the day was donated to the Leamington Food Bank.

Thank you to our volunteers, who helped cook and serve the members: Don Affleck and Carlos Sima from Cavendish, and Tony Coutu from Milo-Fais.

And thank you to everyone that came out to support the fundraiser for your generosity in helping us raise $1,406 to support life-saving research and patient care at the LLSC.
