BMP BBQ Party raises $7,000!

Participants of the BMP BBQ Party event had a great time on Father’s Day! 

With over 50 deluxe BBQ boxes sold, the BMP Foundation raised a fantastic $7,000 in proceeds! This money will be used to purchase new equipment for the Brome-Missisquoi-Perkins Hospital.

Participants left the Gourmet Boutique at L’Étrier restaurant on Saturday, June 19th with their hands full. To celebrate their BMP BBQ Party, each shopper received a L’Étrier BBQ box for 4 people which included chicken tournedos, pork skewers, 1 kg of ribs and a pie; as well as 4 cans of McKeown cider, a bag of sweet Jalapeno chips, 4 reusable snack bags and a BMP Foundation chef’s apron.

In addition, a draw among the buyers of the BBQ box offered additional gifts to 4 participants! One winner received a pair of tickets to a Montreal Alouettes game, courtesy of LB Avocats Inc. Three other winners each received a McKeown Cider House gift basket. Congratulations to the winners!

All of us at the BMP Foundation would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all the donors and participants in this event. Thanks also to our partners and collaborators: Desjardins, L’Étrier, Domaine Bresee Winery, McKeown Cider Mill, IGA Daigneault in Cowansville and LB Avocats inc. THANK YOU!
