Angel Snowfest raises $30,000 for charities
ST. AGATHA, Maine — The 5th annual Angel Snowfest fundraiser in memory of Dick and Carol Derosier brought in more than $30,000 on Saturday, March 10, all of which will help support The Edgar J. Paradis Cancer Fund, Angel Flight New England, and Patient Airlift Services (PALS).
“It was a huge success and a super day,” said Jennifer Derosier Daigle, Dick and Carol’s daughter. “So many different people and some from all over, some supporting, some survivors, some fighting and others who have lost loved ones.”
Dick Derosier passed away in 2012 and Carol in 2013, both following battles with cancer. Saturday’s Angel Snowfest fundraiser took place at the Lakeview Restaurant in St. Agatha. Dick and Carol Derosier founded the restaurant in 1983. Today, Jennifer Derosier Daigle and her husband Jason Daigle own the restaurant.
The all-day Angel Snowfest event included a Snowshoe Walk/Hike and Snowmobile Poker Run. In the evening, guests enjoyed music by Adam Ouellette , Boomerang and Kornerstone as bartenders served drinks from a sculpted ice bar.
To date, Angel Snowfest has raised more than $136,000 for charity.
Jennifer Derosier Daigle said Angel Snowfest will return next year on March 9.
