Sarnia’s CANstruction event has been dubbed a resounding success.

The 3rd annual fundraiser brought in over 37,000 pounds of food and $26,000 in cash for the Inn of the Good Shepherd.

Executive Director Myles Vanni calls it a critical event for the food bank and soup kitchen.

Vanni says awareness of the event was taken to new heights when retired astronaut Chris Hadfield posted the image of Lambton Mall’s “Hadfield for Hunger” build on his Twitter account.

He has over 1 million Twitter followers that could see the image.
