The Hampton Inn welcomes Euphoria II to benefit the Lepont/Bridge Food bank

The Hampton Inn Suites in Dorval was the day of shopping for a cause this past Sunday, as 16 local vendors, and small businesses from Vaudreuil-Soulanges to Montreal to the South Shore were on display to aid the LePont Bridging Food bank in Hudson.

Vaudreuil citizen, Shannon Ellah, an artist on display, realized her artistic gift at a very young age.

“I always had a love for new pencil crayons all perfectly sharpened in the box and I was really good at staying in the lines with crayons as a child but for sure my parents noticed before I did. I thought all kids loved art as much as me at age 5,” Ellah told the Suburban

In order to help the cause, Shannon put up her 16”x20”, Linear Trees in Green up for auction with 100% of donations directly benefiting the charity.

“I really love people, and helping, as it makes me feel like I have a purpose, fills that desire to make others happy, added Ellah.

The Lepont Bridging food bank was created 17 years ago, by Hudson resident, Carol Laws, in order to help a family of five, cope with making ends meet, after the father lost his employment. “I just had an overwhelming urge to help them, and there was nothing out there to help them” said Laws.

The idea of the above mentioned, and other food banks are to help people while they get back on their feet.

“I like that events are being done to raise awareness, money and food for those who do not have enough, but I wish that this would be done year round and not just at the holidays,” said Kelly O’Neill, one of the vendors at Euphoria II.

“A final total will be announced shortly,” stated organizer, Tracy Biggs
