Held at 40 West Restaurant on the West Island, the annual gathering brings together dozens of business and government leaders with community groups to further the goal creating a fully engaged community. Last year’s Red & White Benefit Evening raised $165,000.

 “This is a personal cause for me. I’ve lived on the West Island for most of my life. Over the years, I have seen the great work that many of the charitable groups West Island Community Shares funds.” Hart said. “As a group, we are feeding children, rebuilding neighborhoods, and lifting up those who need it. We are a community that cares enough to share.”

West Island Community Shares serves the area’s more than 200,000 residents by providing vital services. Each dollar of funds raised will be redistributed as aid, adding to $9.7 million disbursed since 1998.
