Pictured (L-R) is Gary Ikona, owner & operator of Leslieville Cheese Market and Jennifer Edwards, Foundation Coordinator for Centre Grey Health Services Foundation (CGHSF).
On September 7th, 2011, Gary presented CGHSF with a cheque in the amount of $500 from the Opera in the Barn fundraising event that was held on August 26th, 2011. The money was donated by those who attended the event, which featured a filmed opera production, Carmen, starring Anna Caterin Antonacci and Jonas Kaufmann.
The event was held in Durham at the Symphony in the Barn and included a wonderful multiple course dinner catered by The Flying Chestnut. The evening was enjoyed by all those who attended and will take place again next summer – watch for dates! Proceeds from this fundraiser will go towards hospital equipment for Centre Grey Hospital in Markdale.
