PIBO Garden Party a Huge Success

On October 2, noted philanthropist Salah Bachir and artist Jacob Yerex hosted a PIBO fundraising event at their home in Paris, Ontario.

The four-hour garden party and art tour was enjoyed by more than 50 attendees paying up to $25,000 each. A huge success, the event raised almost $100,000.

Apart from a sumptuous lunch, each guest received a signed copy of Margaret Atwood’s novel The Testaments, and a jar of local honey. Sponsors received a special edition of Margaret Atwood’s novel The Testaments, and Suzanne Rogers, the Presenting and Title sponsor, received two copies of The Testaments and four prints of Jacob Yerex’s Flowers for Najla.

The proceeds will contribute to PIBO’s ongoing bird-monitoring work on Pelee Island, and to its many outreach programs in the Windsor area.
