Thursday, July 27th saw Royal LePage Team Realty host their 2nd Annual Pulled Pork Fundraiser for Jumpstart.  The day started out with lots of rain but Mother Nature co-operated and the rain subsided in time for the fundraiser.  In under 2 hours, a whopping $1,650 was raised for Jumpstart and with Canadian Tire matching dollar for dollar, that is an amazing $3,300 for the local kids in North Grenville.  This amount of money could not be raised without the amazing sponsors.  A huge shout out to Grahame’s Bakery who once again donated the most delicious buns for the pulled pork sliders, B&H Your Community Grocer for providing the drinks, Royal LePage Team Realty including realtors Chris Drozda, Diana Delisle, Nina Tachuk, Winnie Singer and Lisa Deschambault for covering the cost of the meat, Pistol Packin Piggies for the preparation of our food and Catered Affairs for lending the tables.  A heartfelt thank you to everyone that came out to support our fundraiser where all the money raised stays in our community.  The old saying “It Takes A Village To Raise A Child” is proven in North Grenville – what a community to come together to support Jumpstart.  “Jumpstart is more than just about getting kids active. It’s about giving kids from families in financial need the same chance to participate as their neighbours, their classmates and their friends. Whether it’s the chance to try a new sport or to continue with a favourite one, no kid should be left out.”
