CARP – The biggest party for the women of West Carleton may have been cancelled by COVID-19, but the fundraising spirit of the Carp Fair Ladies Night can’t be quelled.
Although the annual Carp Ladies Night, scheduled for April 17 had to be cancelled, one group of attendees wasn’t going to be put off from fundraising for the Almonte General Hospital (AGH), the intended beneficiary of this year’s charitable funds raised.
The annual Ladies Night has been one of West Carleton’s must-attend events for years, allowing women to enjoy a great social evening while the men did the serving. As well as a good time, the evening also benefits a charity as well as the fair each year. This year’s recipient was to be the Almonte General Hospital Fairview Manor Foundation (AGHF).
Although the Shenanigan-themed event wasn’t able to take place, a group of approximately 20 women decided to take their refund money and donate it directly to the AGHF anyway
The group of donors included Annie Craig, Tanya McNeely, Erin Murphy, Jennie Mick, Teresa Lynch, Joanne Buch, Stephanie Lajeunesse, Crystal Buch, Kelly Patterson, Melissa Hand, Erin Waterfall, Allia Waterfall, Kim McBean, Annie Murphy, Maureen Enright, Nancy Brisson, Maureen Howel, Beth MacDonald, Sue Russell, Debbie McVey and Chrisie Gravelle.
The group of benevolent ladies donated $1,150 to the foundation.
