African dinner to support Stephen Lewis Foundation

Event now at Filberg Centre

The annual African Dinner has moved to the Florence Filberg Centre this year

This is one event you need to act on quickly if you want to get a ticket – the fifth annual African Dinner, a fundraiser for the Stephen Lewis Foundation.

The Merville Grand Mothers and the Glacier Grannies in the Comox Valley are working together to create a memorable evening and raise funds in support of the SLF.

The SLF works with grassroots projects and organizations that focus on supporting grandmothers in sub-Saharan Africa and the many orphaned grandchildren they “parent” as a result of the HIV/AIDS pandemic.

This year the Filberg Centre in Courtenay has been booked for Sunday April 17 and will seat 150 lucky diners.

The Merville Grand Mothers have already planned the menu and organized their cooking teams.

The Glacier Grannies are taking care of the decorating, serving, entertainment and a silent auction.

Janine Reid from the Royal City Gogos in Vancouver has been invited as the guest speaker.

She will be speaking about this year’s 10th anniversary celebrations of the Grandmother to Grandmother Campaign. Our sponsor is Mason Walker of Re/max Ocean Pacific Realty who will help defray many of our costs.

Tickets are available at the Laughing Oyster and Blue Heron bookstores and the Merville General Store. For $35 per person, you will be fed, inspired, and given the opportunity to bid on a variety of gift certificates and services donated from local businesses.

Don’t be disappointed, The event is always a sell-out.
