DOP District 23 Virtual Christmas Fundraiser Supports Ottawa Food Bank

December 14, 2021

MONTREAL – On December 10, the Daughters of Penelope (DOP) Beaver District 23 held their first ever virtual Christmas fundraiser via Zoom. The proceeds of the event went to the Ottawa Food Bank. To date, $412.13 was raised. The virtual fundraiser was a fun-packed event filled with carols and games. It started with award-winning soprano, Sister Venetia Stelliou, who generously recorded Christmas carols to share.

Everyone played a fun game of Christmas Movie Bingo and reminisced about the classics. The event included a Christmas trivia game which was a lot of fun, and most importantly, the attendees got to see each other and spread some cheer. Among the guests were DOP District 23 Governor Angela Mouriopoulos, AHEPA District 6 Lt. Governor Chris Pappis, Past DOP Canadian President Betty Drakontaidis, and Past DOP District 23 Governor Xanthe Vafopoulou.
