We’ve written about how great Family Place is, and the time has come when Family Place needs your help to continue to offer top notch programming to those who need it most.
On Tuesday, November 15, at the Paddlewheeler Pub, join in on the effort to raise funds for much needed expenses. It is a great cause and sounds like it will be lots of fun. The silent auction prizes are great – there are two TVs, a night at the fabulous Inn at the Quay, a week in a condo in Arizona, and other great goodies and baskets you can bid on.
Marjorie Staal, Executive Director, says that they are raising funds for “the day to day things like wages for our staff, rent so that we can keep doors open and have bright shining smiles for children to see when they arrive, and to keep buying consumable supplies for the programs.”
Family Place has over 450 families that joined us last year at the main site on Sixth Street, as well as at their Lord Kelvin hub, their Food Bank program, and their Parent Child Mother Goose program. They also have a grandparent program at the new ELC at Qayqayt Elementary. All of these programs are done on a shoestring budget, and costs are going up and up! They are hoping that the community can rally behind them next Tuesday night. Doors at at 6pm. Call 604-520-3666 to get tickets put on hold for you to pick up at the door or stop by their main location to get them in advance at 93 Sixth Street.
