On April 22, 2023, over 350 people attended our annual Spring Fundraising Banquet at the Portuguese Club of Leamington. It was a great evening of dinner, entertainment, silent auction, and live auction. Thank you to all our sponsors, donors, and auction buyers who made the night such a success.

Annual Spring Banquet Raises $90,000

All money raised goes to the cost of producing dehydrated vegetable soup and apple snacks for local and international distribution. Along with the work of our amazing volunteers, financial support from our annual fundraiser allows us to distribute millions of meal servings to those in need.

If you missed the event and wish to make a donation to the SWO Gleaners, you can do so here on the website or by e-transfer to [email protected] or stop in and see us!
