Join us for the first fundraiser for Refugees Belong!
When? Saturday, November 14, @ 7 PM.
Where? Vineyard Ministry Centre (1129 Sackville Drive)
Cultivating Belonging: An Evening to Connect with the Refugee Experience. 100% of the funds raised will go towards bringing a family to Canada and settling them in our community. Come and show your support!
Tickets are $10 per person and must be bought in advance from the Avodah Cafe (1129 Sackville Drive / 902-864-4652). You can also reserve tickets by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We need to know by Wednesday, November 11th, how many people are coming so that we can prepare enough food!
There will be delicious Syrian food, as well as entertainment, and education about Syria and the refugee crisis. We are thrilled to let you know that Arta Rexhepi has accepted our invitation to speak about her experiences coming to Halifax as a Kosovar refugee in 1999. You can find out more about Arta's journey in an article she published in CBC News last year.
We have also recently received word that CTV is interested in filming the event!
