Spirit of giving continues with a team effort

The Wismer House of Port Elgin teamed up with 7 Acres and Outlaw Brewery of Southampton at the Friday night WOAA Winterhawks Sr. Men’s Hockey Game in Port Elgin on December 21st.  The annual team effort was in support of the Living Hope Church Food Basket/Bank.

The ‘team’ (L-R) Jeff Carver, owner of the Wismer House, Lorne Lazenby (7 Acres), Laura McInnes (Wismer                                 House) and Al Robertson (7 Acres) [absent is Outlaw Brewery)

The Wismer House ‘five-buck donation’ bought the chance to win one of three prizes – a Wismer gift card, an Outlaw Brewery gift basket and the grand prize, two Maple Leaf hockey tickets and a night’s accommodation in Toronto.

The five-buck donation raised $2,305 which will go toward gift cards to be given to the Living Hope Food Bank.

“The community was very supportive as it always is,” says Jeff Carver. “Again this year, we will be able to give gift cards to Living Hope so that families will get what they actually need, whether it’s diapers or food.”
