It’s spring and you know what that means – fundraising time!
It is also fundraising time in summer, fall, and winter, but those seasons will just have to wait their turn. Spring is a time for all things fresh and new. The days are getting longer, the sun is saying hello a bit more frequently, the snow is finally going away and we at Child Haven are in the midst of Fundraisers Galore – yippy! Come and celebrate Spring with Child Haven at one of our many upcoming fundraising events.
This coming weekend there two fundraisers in the Toronto, Ontario area. On Saturday there is the Child Haven GTA Dinner, Silent Auction, and Bazaar at the Swagat Banquet Hall in Mississauga. Visit their website for more details – www.friendsofchildhaven.org
Then on Sunday we have the another Fundraising Dinner in Waterloo at the St. George Banquet Hall. They will have Henna painting, Bollywood dancing, and even a special Kid’s Zone to keep everyone entertained. Take a look at their Facebook Page for more information – www.facebook.com/CHIWaterloo
Both of these events are sure to be amazing. If you are anywhere near Toronto come on out and join the party.
At the end of April we are very excited for the Glebe Charity Soiree. An evening of friends, food, and fundraising held at the 5th Ave Court in Ottawa, Ontario. We are extremely honored to host a special guest for this evening - a Board Member of the Maitreya Home who is here visiting friends in Canada. It will surely be a night to remember.
And we can’t forget about the folks out west. On Saturday, April 27th, the brilliant Kiran Ahluwalia will be performing a concert with partial proceeds going to Child Haven International. This can’t-miss performance will be at the Alix Goolden Hall in Victoria, British Columbia.
Kiran is a very talented Indo-Canadian singer who performs her own musical arrangements of ancient Persian and Punjabi Ghazals, or poems. Here is a Kiran Ahluwalia Song YouTube video – check it out. This event is sure to be memorable, get your tickets today.
We are also gearing up for Bonnie and Fred’s 60th wedding anniversary and raising funds for the Diamond Jubilee Endowment Fund.
We are asking our supporters to celebrate with us on July 14th by hosting your own fundraising event. Gather your friends and family, your coworkers and acquaintances, and throw an anniversary party! It can be a bbq or a fancy dinner, it can be a picnic or simply cocktails. We want you to celebrate with us and help raise money for the newly established $6 million Diamond Jubilee Endowment Fund. Join us for a live broadcast at 6:00pm EST by Bonnie and Fred right from the Child Haven website. This is a way for everyone to get involved and show your support for Child Haven and for Fred and Bonnie Cappuccino.
We hope you are able to make it out to one of our fundraising events, and we hope you are all enjoying your spring!
Until next time,
