Announcing a new Meetup for The North Shore Social Club!
What: Wine & Cheese Open House (Fundraiser for Haiti Relief)
When: Saturday, February 6,[masked]:30 PM
Kim & Paul's Townhouse
North Vancouver, BC V7G 0A1
Please join us for a very special open house
. We are holding the first ever North Shore Social Club Fundraising Event. On this night, the members of the NSSC are invited to a casual evening of meeting, growing new friendships, and helping our Haitian brothers & sisters
who lives have been so devastated by the recent earthquake.
Please bring a small appetizer plate to share with friends and a cheque for $25.00
. Paul & Kim will provide beverages including wine, cheese & bread from local artisans.
Please understand... Your cheque is NOT payment for the wine and cheese, rather it will be made out by you to one of two charities: Doctors Without Borders and The Primates World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF). All personal cheques will be marked for The Haitian Earthquake. Kim and Paul will then package the cheques together, and mail them to the respective charities on Monday. It is important to get them in the mail right away in order to realize the 50/50 match being offered by the Canadian Goverment. To qualify for the government match the cheques must be received by the charities on or before February the 12th.
For more information about these charities, please go to www.msf.ca and www.pwrdf.org Doctors Without Borders have recently issued a plea for help in buying much needed medical supplies. The Primate's World Relief and Development Fund, targets relief in the short term and stays on for the long term to fund development initiatives. Here's the challenge folks!!!
Currently if the 13 people who have RSVP'd "yes" and the 5 people who have RSVP'd "maybe" attend then we will have $450.00 to send and with the match it will realize $900. I am hoping that 30 people will attend!! If 30 people attend, we will raise $750 which will be matched by the government of Canada and will then realize $1500! Let's do it!!!
Join us Saturday evening as we enjoy each other's company over a little food and wine. And even if you can't come for the evening, why not drop by to say hello? Take a moment out of a busy weekend to join the North Shore Social Club as we offer a hand of hope to Haiti.
