WINCHESTER — Dundas Manor’s ‘Fries for Charity’ event pulled in $2,000 on Monday.

The fundraiser for the WDMH Foundation’s ‘Healthcare Undesignated Fund’ drew friends, family and neighbours to the venue. And Dundas Manor residents and staff got to enjoy the tasty treat, too.

Fries for Charity owner Al Graham says he was inspired to build the truck so he could stay involved with the community. “Fries for Charity allows me to do that — and support local charities at the same time,” he said.

“We are so grateful to everyone who came out to support this event,” noted WDMH Foundation Managing Director Kristen Casselman. “What a nice treat!”

“Special thanks to all the sponsors of the event and the many volunteers who helped out,” added Susan Poirier, Dundas Manor Administrator.  “And a shout-out to Foodland who delivered extra potatoes when we ran out!”

At the cheque presentation are: Al Graham, Dundas Manor Nutritional Manager Stacey Williams and Justine Plummer, Manager of Direct Mail & Events, WDMH Foundation.
