Cornwall Ontario — On March 26th restaurant Au Vieux Duluth in Cornwall joined with the Cornwall Police Service again to raise funds for the Special Olympics Ontario through the Law Enforcement Torch Run. Guests were served a choice of 3 delicious main dishes by friendly police and wait staff, many donating their time, all in return for a donation to Special Olympics Ontario through the Law Enforcement Torch Run. A Silent Auction was also featured.
100% of donations go to Special Olympics. 75% towards sports equipment, facility rentals, Special Olympics events (Games & Competition) and athlete training right here in your community. The rest assists with the expansion of the Law Enforcement Torch Run program. Law Enforcement officers carry the “Flame of Hope” all across the world for Special Olympics athletes.
Thank you for generous donations from Robert Coté, Exotic Limo, Sleeman Brewery, Mattress World, Roger’s Marina, Bob Copeland, The Seeker, Coffee News, Standard Freeholder, Le Journal de Cornwall, and Corus Entertainment, Dave’s sign’s, Astro printing and KAV production. The Chamber of Commerce, and Team Cornwall.
A special thank you to all our volunteers and supporters and thank you for a great time and a great meal. This is what Community is all about!
