(TLN) The maison des enfants le Dauphin (MED) launched its 5th annual wine and cheese financing campaign on Feb. 10. Robert Hayes of the Deveau legal firm is the chairman of this year’s campaign for the benefit of the family and children’s shelter.
Le Dauphin’s fundraising method is simple and original. For a $200 donation, patrons get a choice between four boxed gifts: one containing wine and cheese with gift cards, or three other gift boxes containing gift cards for various services including spa treatments, restaurants and hotel lodging. As well, each gift box comes with a receipt good for a $100 tax deduction.
Hayes and the Dauphin fundraising team have set a goal of raising $20,000 in this year’s campaign through the sale of at least 100 gift boxes. The campaign draws to a close on April 29. Those wishing to donate to the campaign can purchase gift boxes online at www.maisondesenfants.qc.ca/financement.php or by calling 450 978-2664.
