Touchette says the fundraising target is to match or exceed last year’s total of about $20,000.00.

“That money goes to the food bank,” Touchette explains. “It’s a fundraiser we do to help people less fortunate at Christmastime.”

There are several ways to honour your pledge, including e-transfer.

WHY BILL MITCHELL?
