Chez Doris

We are open on Good Friday! For breakfast we had: Cereal, bagels with cream cheese, yogurt parfaits, assorted mini quiches, grapes, orange juice, coffee and tea. Claire Keys sang for the women followed by bingocand prizes (Tim Horton Gift Cards, Chocolates and more…)

For lunch there is: Carrot Soup with buns, salmon, asparagus and roasted sweet potatoes. Tiramisu cake for dessert. Afterwards, Magician Philip and Henry will entertain the ladies. During the show each woman will receive a food bag including great chocolates and other sweets! As well, each woman will leave with a goodie bag which includes jewelry and makeup.

All this was made possible with the money raised from the mitten project. Thank you to Tina and the women of Chez Doris who worked so hard making the mittens and to all those who purchased the mittens.

The profits, which reach $80,000, go to many, many community organizations throughout the city. ... See MoreSee Less
