Auction Raises $136,000 

for Notre Dame Day Care

by Patti Hacault, Staff Reporter


A community is a familiar thread used to bring people together to advocate and support each other in various projects that will benefit those in the area.


It was a huge endeavour, but Notre Dame de Lourdes and surrounding communities provided the needed sponsorship support towards La Garderie Arc-en-ciel Inc.’s new Day Care facility.


It was a huge crowd at the Notre Dame Centennial Hall on Saturday, November 3rd, 2018, to bid on 99 items up for auction. There were a total of approximately 140 donations that went into the live auction. There was also a rainbow auction and two silent auctions.


Auctioneers Rick Sierens and Maurice Grenier donated their auction services for the evening.


Organizers confirmed this past Tuesday that $136,000 was raised from last Saturday’s event.


La Garderie Arc-en-ciel Inc., who presently has 65 spaces enrolled in their Day Care, is fundraising towards an expansion of a new Day Care building onto the École Notre-Dame Elementary School.
