Event brewed to order - Parry Sound North Star

Event brewed to order - Parry Sound North Star: "PARRY SOUND - Alymer, Quebec native Elodie Button found it odd when she arrived here two months ago with the Canada World Youth (CWY) exchange program and found herself with no fundraising work to do.

“I do a lot of work in Ottawa for a lot of causes. I came here and it was just kind of weird for me not to be doing something,” said Ms Button.

However, with the help of several of the participants of CYW, Ms Button has organized a fundraising event to aid Doctors Without Borders.

“They go and set up hospitals in refugee camps and they provide short-term assistance in crisis situations. They’re active in pretty much any situation like that in the world; they’re the first ones there,” she said."
