There was a welcome donation from the Queen's Bar & Grill to the Liv-A-Little Foundation September 11 as Queen's owner Pier Donnini presented the Little family with a cheque for $1,000.

The money was raised through the sale of karma bowls at the downtown Port Elgin establishment throughout the Liv-A-Little Foundation's Paint the Town Purple campaign. The month long event, which runs each year throughout the month of August aims to raise awareness about cystinosis, a life-threatening disease that afflicts approximately 75 children and young adults in Canada; including Saugeen Shores' Olivia Little.

Monies raised through the sale of karma bowls also help to feed people in the community as the Queen's Bar & Grill donates between 3,000 and 4,000 meals a year through various initiatives including the annual Christmas Eve dinner at the Living Hope Christian Centre in the Maple Square Mall. “We use the proceeds from [karma bowls] so people can feel part of what we're doing to feed people,” said Donnini September 11.
