Garage and Bake Sale
Our first fundraiser was a Garage Sale and Bake Sale on Saturday, June 17th. Many families contributed great items for the sale which ran from 10 to 2 at the corner of Rose & William Streets in Grandview-Woodland. This sale raised over $2200 and we would like to thank everyone that attended or assisted.
Wine & Cheese
On July 11th, a resident from the Grandview-Woodland neighbourhood hosted a wine and cheese event. This event raised close to $1,000! Our local MLA Shane Simpson attended. Read about it in the community news file below.
Wine & Cheese & Syrian Snacks
On September 23, we raised more than $1,400 at a neighbourhood wine & Syrian Snacks event. Some snacks were prepared by the family sponsored by the Parker Street Sponsorship Initiative who have started a catering business & cooking class. A real success story!
Thank you to all the generous donors & sponsors for making this event a great success!
