We are having a fundraising this Saturday, February 28, from 7 pm to 9:30 at 2538 139A St. The cost is $25/each or $40/couple; and will include live entertainment, a cash bar, door prizes, and refreshments.(see poster below for details)
The fundraiser will help support construction of the new community garden planned for the corner of 128th St. and 25th Ave. in Ocean Park. You’ll get the opportunity to meet other garden-like and food-security-like people and who knows…may get a plot in the garden!
Ticket sales for our fundraiser need to pick up if the event is to be successful. It is a vital part of setting a firm foundation for the next stage of the process, the construction of the garden itself. The project needs financial and in-kind donations if we are to see it through to success; and this is more important now than ever, given unanticipated delays and expenses.
Tickets are available through Alex House. Just send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call me at 604-535-0015 (ext 236). Let Neil know how many you want; and whether you’ll be purchasing them at Alex House or at the venue.
