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.

Chez Doris

Many thanks to Station 12 for dropping by with a check to Chez Doris (pictured from left to right are Station 12 Commander Martine Dubuc, Marina Boulos from Chez Doris and Agent Adalbert Pimentel also from Station 12). Every Fall, the Montreal Police Brotherhood hold a Baked Beans Day, where a lunch of baked beans is sold to the public (about eight metric tons of beans plus accompaniments…that’s a lot of beans)! The profits, which reach $80,000, go to many, many community organizations throughout the city. ... See MoreSee Less

Chez Doris

Last week, West Island resident Sarah Alter was back to provide a third annual ‘’Spa Day’’ for the women at Chez Doris! This year, six volunteers from Salon Vibes in Pierrefonds helped 30 women feel glamorous, with new haircuts, blow-dries and manicures. A nice occasion for the women to feel pampered thanks to the dedication of volunteers and donors! During their salon treatments women enjoyed fruit salad provided by IGA from Marché de l’ouest and sandwich and pastry platters from Snowden Deli. All participants received gift bags filled with Arbonne Canada products. In total $2,500 was raised from donors to purchase all the “Spa Day" beauty products.

Pictured: Sarah Alter, Independent Consultant with Arbonne International, along with employees from Salon Vibes: Marissa, Rachel, Chelsea, Tammy, Jenifer, as well as Salon Vibes owner, Caroline. With sincere thanks to all who made it a special day!
