The third annual Poor Boy's Luncheon has raised almost $4,000 for the Kincardine Food Bank.
Held Friday at the Kincardine Legion, the event drew about 200 people to enjoy a lunch of pasta and sauce, salad and bread, along with beverages and dessert.
The annual luncheon is organized by the Kincardine Investment and Insurance Professionals who served the meal alongside volunteers from the food bank. Chef Justin Green of Kincardine was in charge of the kitchen.
Providing entertainment were the "Dream Dogs," consisting of Tom Lambert on keyboard, Karen Weber on guitar, Mike Smith on drums, Steve Hasbury on saxophone, Tom Durrant on violin, and Ron Neyvatte on trumpet. There were also some great draw prizes to be won.
Bill Shewfelt of the organizing committee offered appreciation to all the volunteers who worked so hard to make the event another success. Unofficial totals saw 183 people attend the luncheon, raising $3,800 for the food bank.
Last year, the luncheon saw more than 300 people attend, raising $5,300 for Community Living of Kincardine and District.
