Inequality buffet serves up a social lesson

At least 80 participants were given a taste of inequality during an interactive dinner activity hosted by the Collectif pour un Québec sans pauvreté on May 23.

The evening featured a unique role-playing game where guests were assigned a character and a certain disposable income to be spent at the buffet. And, while everyone had more than enough to eat, some dined on the delectable options provided by the Domaine de la Templerie more richly than others.

The event took place at the Lac des Pins reception hall in Franklin. It was sponsored by the Caisse Desjardins du Haut-Saint-Laurent and was organized by the CDC du Haut-Saint-Laurent and several member organizations, including Espace Suroit, les Aidants du Haut-Saint-Laurent, S.A.B.E.C., and the Chateauguay Valley Community Information Services.

The evening also presented an opportunity for participants to learn more about planned giving during a presentation by Pierre-Luc Brault, the director of individual and planned giving at Opération Enfant Soleil. The evening concluded with a performance by local artist Jamil Azzaoui. (SR)
