Have you ever wondered what a SoyaCow is?
Do you know where Chittagong is located? Or how a barley mill works?
Attend this year’s Child Haven fundraising dinner and find out.
Inspired by the philosophy of Mahatma Gandhi, Child Haven International helps children and women in developing countries.
With five homes in India, one in Nepal, one in Tibet and one in Bangladesh, Child Haven provides food, education, health care, shelter, clothing, and support for hundreds of people. Girls and boys are treated equally, without regard to race, caste, colour, religion or culture.
On Oct. 27, attend the Child Haven fundraising dinner in the Upper Florence Filberg Centre and learn more about Child Haven International.
In addition to entertainment, sales tables of exotic goods, a slide show and door prizes, you’ll enjoy a vegetarian, Indian dinner. Plus, you can meet the founders of Child Haven International, Bonnie and Fred Cappuccino, and speak with Comox Valley residents who have volunteered in Child Haven homes.
Doors open at 5 p.m. and dinner will be served at 6.
Looking for a unique gift?
Even if you’re unable to attend the dinner, you’re invited to browse the sales tables without purchase of a ticket. The sales tables will be open to the public from 5 to 6.
Tickets are $20 for adults, $10 for children, and are available at Laughing Oyster Bookstore in Courtenay and Blue Heron Books in Comox. For more information, call Heather at 250-338-2181.
