Bancroft loves Schneiders hotdogs. In four hours a small BBQ truck from Schneiders sold a ton of hotdogs for Hospice North Hastings and Hospice coordinator Heather Brough is thrilled with the results.
“We were overwhelmed by the support from all of the shoppers who came by to grab a bite and talk about our programs and services,” said Brough. “We also go to chat with cottagers who were amazed that North Hastings has its own residential hospice.”
The fundraiser was generously organized by new Bancroft Foodland owners Carole and Joe Favot.
The couple moved to Bancroft from Kirkland Lake and have been keeping busy since taking over the 24-hour grocery store on June 8.
“We love it here,” said Carole Favot. “This town is awesome and we’re just happy we could help Hospice North Hastings.”
And with Schneiders, Bancroft Foodland, Heather Brough and Hospice North Hastings volunteer Bev Rollins selling hotdogs in the busy Foodland parking lot on Saturday July 26, the results were outstanding.
In four hours a staggering $859 was raised.
“We are thrilled,” Brough said after the BBQ. “This was a great event and we thank everyone that was involved.”
