2018 Xmas Potluck

GCCABC cordially invites you to our Annual Holiday Potluck on December 9th 2018 at St. Anne’s on Francis Road in Richmond from 2-6 PM

2018 GCCABC Xmas Lunch

In addition to any potluck item you might bring to share, we are also asking that you please bring a non-perishable food item for contribution towards St. Anne’s food drive. We appreciate anything you can donate towards this.
We will have a gift hamper for raffling off as well as some other special prizes.

Contributions of money towards the cost of the event as well as contributions of assistance during set up before and clean up afterwards are always very welcome. We are very lucky to have the use of this hall and we like to be good community members and ensure we leave it spic-and-span afterwards

For potluck information call Sylvia Hodge Jemmott at 778-882-1852 or Louise Gadd at 604-551-1306

OLE TIME LIME – November 3. 2018

OLE TIME LIME – a fundraiser and social event hosted by Guyanese Canadian Cultural Association of BC (GCCABC)
Saturday, November 3rd, from 1-5pm at The Heritage Grill, 447 Columbia Street in New Westminster

In 2016 and 2017 we were able to send at least $500 each year directly to libraries in Guyana to help literacy initiatives. We have been able to partner with Guyana Book Foundation to ensure that those libraries got 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 2018 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 Eventbritehttps://gccabc.eventbrite.ca ). Tickets will be $25 at the venue, so you save a few dollars if you buy online (and it helps us plan).

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.
