RE: [couples-491] New Meetup: Wine & Cheese Open House (Fundraiser for Haiti Relief)

Hi Kim

Sorry I missed your call. Bet you are going crazy with all the renos and your party coming up.

What I had mentioned to Nina the other night – was the donation cost may be affecting attendance. Personally have already donated  $100 to various charities supporting Haiti – so am a bit hesitant about another $25

So what I has mentioned was that as others may be in the same position (or in the case of some of our north shorers they just do not have the extra cash) and as a result that a  $10 donation and then suggesting that if people can contribute more it is at their discretion.

 

Just a thought, I am not sure yet about this weekend will see how things pan out this week.

 

Lisa

Subject: [couples-491] New Meetup: Wine & Cheese Open House (Fundraiser for Haiti Relief)

 

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

Where:
Kim & Paul's Townhouse
Lower Lonsdale
North Vancouver, BC V7G 0A1
[masked]


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.
