Oakville Parent-Child Centre (OPCC) wins summer barbecue celebration. OPCC dedicates their time to support, nurture and empower children and their families as they learn and grow together. Now the community has voted to honour them for all their hard work with a summer barbecue for 100 guests of their choice on June 25, 2014 at Whole Foods Market Oakville.

“Whole Foods Market supports local non-profit organizations through our Five Percent Days and One Dime at a Time programs, however, we also wanted to recognize and commend the hard work and dedication of the volunteers, organizers and supporters who give selflessly to those organizations,” says France Fournier, Community Relations Specialist, Whole Foods Market Oakville. “Oakville Parent-Child Centre was chosen by those in the community and we are looking forward to giving them a day of celebration with a great barbecue, good food, good friends and good tunes.”

OPCC will invite 100 guests of their choice to the barbecue where they will enjoy delicious summer treats catered by Whole Foods Market Oakville and listen to live music from local reggae band FuZion.

“OPCC is thrilled to be the winner of the Charity Eats BBQ”, says Robin Garell, Executive Director. “Whole Foods Market is a tremendous supporter of OPCC and other charities in Oakville. This BBQ is just one more example of their community service in action. A huge thank you to everyone who voted for OPCC. Our team does such great work for families every day and this is a unique way to recognize their efforts and say thank you.”

In early May, nominations for community nonprofits were posted to Whole Foods Market Oakville’s social media channels. For the final round of the competition, the community chose three charities, Oakville Parent-Child Centre, The Lighthouse for Grieving Children and Oakville Literacy Council.

The Oakville Literacy Council received the second highest number of votes and won a $300 cash prize, while the third place organization, The Lighthouse for Grieving Children won a $150 cash prize.
