Event description

Description

This event is a night to raise funds for a great cause (minimum $10 donation per person, details below):

A group of seven Victoria, BC residents are working to sponsor a very young and vulnerable refugee to come to Canada. This young woman is still in her teens, but has been on her own as a refugee for over two years already. She has fled persecution in her own country, and is currently living in circumstances in which she continues to be unsafe and highly vulnerable. It will be a long process-- but we look forward to welcoming her to her new home, and to supporting her and helping her find new opportunities in Canada.

Part of the commitment is to raise enough money to support her for the first year after her arrival. Thank you all so much for any help you can offer!

The Inter-Cultural Association of Greater Victoria will be our Settlement Agreement Holder Agency.

So! This event gives you the opportunity to learn and experience South Africa though stories, fun, food, games and celebration!

The small print: $10 minimum donation per person, to be e-transferred to Bri Westhaver (briwesthaver@gmail.com) to reserve your spot! This includes a unique South African food experience! We are sooooo looking forward to being with you! We would love your earliest reply so we can provide you with some favourite South African dishes. Bring along some extra cash to support our silent auction and participate in the games we've created especially for this event!

An all ages event and families are welcome! Bring your dancing shoes !

Doors open at 5.30 so we can get started on all the fun this has to offer!

Alcohol for sale will be on the premises, all profits going to the cause!

**** And, if you can't make it and you'd like to contribute, you can donate by buying a ticket. Indicate your donation amount and write *donation only, no ticket* in the memo. You can also donate prizes and raffle items.

There is also the opportunity to donate a larger amount and a tax receipt is available. To find out more, or how else you can contribute, please contact 250 8858578
