Dance of help after fire

After a fierce fire completely destroyed the home of Molly and Blue Skye in the village area behind Hamburger Heaven, friends and family of the mother and daughter are organizing a fundraiser to help out in their time of need.

Tomorrow at 8 p.m. at the Knights of Columbus, music will fill the air courtesy of Mouchie’s Mobile, as the Molly & Blue Skye Benefit Dance will run to closing.

Kyle Zachary’s band, the Beat Vandalz, and anyone else who wants to jump on stage will provide the live portion in addition to Mouchie as DJ, and K103 Radio’s Paul Graif will MC.

14237486_10153726237626927_8601722573196397731_nCover is $10.

“She’s not just my family member, she’s a Kahnawake community member and we take care of our own,” said organizer Carina Deere, who along with other relatives and friends rallied to put the show together.

“Family and friends came together to give our community the opportunity to show their support,” said Deere.

There is an ongoing half-and-half raffle at $5 a ticket that will be drawn during the dance. Those wanting a ticket can contact Deere on Facebook or call 450-635-4612 and leave a message.

In addition there will be a penny fair style raffle, and silent auction during the dance.

Dear Readers:

As an essential service that is still open during the COVID-19 pandemic, The Eastern Door is fighting hard to keep news like this flowing, in our print product, though an online subscription at www.eastermdoor.com and here, for free, on our website and Facebook.

But when a large portion of our regular revenue has disappeared due to so many other businesses being closed, our circulation being affected by the same issue, and all of our specials canceled until the end of the year, we are looking for alternative ways to keep operations going, staff paid, and the paper out every Friday for you to enjoy.

Please consider a financial contribution to help us keep doing what we do best; telling the stories of our people in a contemporary medium – a solid, continuing archive that documents our cherished, shared history. Your kind donation will go to a newspaper that stands as the historical record, in-depth, informative and award-winning news; colourful stories, and a big boost to the local economy by employing 95 percent local workers.

Also, please consider subscribing to our e-edition, which comes out Thursday night, at www.easterndoor.com today, or pick up your copy Friday morning in Kahnawake, Kanesatake or Chateauguay. Akwesasne delivery has been suspended due to the pandemic and border issues.

We exercise real freedom of the press every single day. Without our reporters fighting for the truth our community would be missing a whole lot of facts, separated from gossip and rumors.

E-transfers are accepted and very much appreciated at: [email protected]
