Bingo event helping pregnant moms eat well
An annual bingo event taking place on April 24 will help ensure that expectant mothers in difficult economic situations can get the balanced nutrition they and their babies need.
The Cercle de Fermières Les Coteaux will host the 6:00 p.m. game night, and will even provide transportation to and from the Les Coteaux Community Centre to Bingo Presqu’île in VaudreuilDorion.
Proceeds from those tickets ($25 for bingo and transportation) purchased directly from the Cercle de Fermières will help the group help Fondation OLO. Fondation Bébé OLO (oeuf, lait, jus d’orange) is a non-profit group that has been helping pregnant mothers-to-be since 1991. A $350 donation will provide an expectant mother with eggs, milk, orange juice, vitamins and minerals for approximately 1000 days. The time frame includes pregnancy plus the baby’s first and second years of life.
To purchase tickets to the bingo event, contact Linda Lebeau at 450 267-0419.
