Come and enjoy a vegetarian Indian dinner with Bonnie and Fred Cappuccino, the founders of Child Haven, Order of Canada and Nobel Peace Prize nominees.
This year’s dinner is Thursday, Oct. 24 at Upper Florence Filberg Centre. Doors open at 5 p.m. and dinner is at 6.

Robin Cappuccino will share stories of the children through a PowerPoint presentation.
Bonnie and Fred had two children and decided to adopt destitute children from several countries – 19 in all!
They founded Child Haven in 1985 inspired by the philosophy of Mahatma Gandhi. The homes are run on nonviolence, equality for all regardless of cast, colour, race or religion and a vegetarian diet.
The money for the ongoing running of the homes is garnered by the dinners, which sell goods that are bought by Bonnie in these countries for a fair price. Bonnie visits the homes four times a year. Child Haven has very low overhead so the majority of the money goes directly to the homes.
As well, Child Haven supports many women’s projects and elderly people.
Tickets are $25 for adults and $10 for children and are available at Blue Heron and Laughing Oyster book stores and 4 Quarters Restaurant in Cumberland. For more information call Heather 250-338-2181.
