“We thank you very much for this donation,” said McGinnis. “Every dollar helps the people in our community.”

Over the past five years the club has supported Hospice Prince Edward, the ROC, the PECMH Foundation, Relay for Life, the Regent Theatre, County FM, Prince Edward Minor Ball Hockey, and more.

St Jean also thanked the evening’s special guests handling the bucket draws and silent auctions, mayor Robert Quaiff, councillor Kevin Gale; and live auctioneer Adam Miller.

As well as the charity auction, the club holds events throughout the year – including a charity golf tournament, electronics recycling and barbecues, but is also known for their Thursday night television bingo games, on the local cable channel for more than 30 years.
