BBQ Raises Money for Perth / St. Luigi School Playground

From Ward 18 City Councillor Ana Bailao's July 18 2012 newsletter:

Great Success at Ward 18 Community BBQ!

More than $55,000 raised in support of "Field of Dreams"!

Each year I am happy to host the Ward 18 Community BBQ in support of a great local initiative! This year's BBQ was held in support of an energetic group of teachers, students and parents from Perth Avenue Public School and St. Luigi Catholic School who are striving to animate their shared schoolyard, and our neighbourhood, by fundraising to build a running track and soccer pitch.

Before this barbeque even began the Parent Council had done a substantial amount of work and raised a significant sum of money. In March of this year the project won $50,000 from Maple Leaf Sports Entertainment’s Team Up Foundation in a very competitive, province-wide process that included two rounds of voting and judgement by an expert panel. As Councillor, I supported this important community project by putting the word out and by committing $100,000 raised as a result of local development.

During the barbeque our community showed its spirit and generosity, further supporting this great initiative to the tune of more than $55,000! This sum is made up of the combined funds raised through a yard sale, food donations, raffle ticket sales and contributions by several individuals and organizations. Now with well over $200,000 in the bank to fund this project it is almost certain that the "Field of Dreams" will be built.
