I.F. Knights of Columbus distribute annual “slices of the pie” to non-profits

Non-profit groups have been getting a slice of the Iroquois Falls Knights of Columbus pie lately.

“Slice of the Pie” began a few years ago, when a pizza party at the Earl Porter Lanes featured the Knights divvying up the money it had raised in the community.

Grand Knight Rick Charlebois says this year’s pie is worth more than five-thousand dollars.

“A hundred percent of the profits we derive from our cash calendars and a good portion of our other fundraisers goes back to local charities or not-for-profits in the community,” he notes.

COVID-19 has reduced the pizza party to photo-ops.  Surrender and Live and the Bill Harkins-Eugene Ricard Santa Claus Fund have already picked up their cheques, with a couple more to come.

All this is despite COVID-19 also derailing the annual sports and trade show the past two years.  It’s the KC’s biggest fundraiser.

“But we still, the community has still been buying into our cash calendar program,” says Grand Knight Charlebois, “and we’ve been giving away, well, roughly, four or five-thousand dollars per year.”
