OLE TIME LIME – a fundraiser and social event hosted by Guyanese Canadian Cultural Association of BC (GCCABC)
In 2016, 2017, and 2018 we were able to send at least $500 each year direcly to communities in Guyana to help literacy initiatives. We have been able to partner with Guyana Book Foundation to ensure that those libraries get great value for the money; it allows us to spend in Guyana and thus help the economy; and it ensures that the materials are suitable for readers in Guyana. We all think that supporting literacy initiatives is incredibly important.
This is our last chance in 2019 to add to the funds for our donation this year. If you can’t make it, we certainly will miss you, but please consider making a purchase – as a donation – and the full amount will add to the funds
Event will include: Burger, Fries/Salad and a Beer for ONLY $21.50 if you purchase in advance through Eventbrite. Tickets will be $25 at the venue, so you save a few dollars if you buy online (and it helps us plan).
The ‘burger’ option is beef, chicken, OR Veggie and the side option is fries or salad.
The beer is a light ale, or one of their house ales.
We will have music, dominos, and cards and we hope you come out and have a bite to eat and a mingle.
Proceeds from this fundraiser will help the association meet their goals.
Join us Saturday, November 9th, 2019 between 3-8pm at The Heritage Grill in NewWest
