CONTRIBUTION · 9th February 2010
Once again people and businesses of Terrace and surrounding areas are showing their generosity to help those in need in Haiti. A group of young Terrace East Indian individuals led by Sukhwinder Pandher, a City of Terrace employee, have worked extremely hard over the last week and half to put together a Haitian fundraiser dinner and dance.
The event is taking place this coming Saturday evening at the Terrace Arena Banquet Room. There will be East Indian food, and live and DJ music. But it is SOLD OUT! The 200 tickets are already gone.
All $25 ticket monies will be donated to the Canadian Red Cross and the Salvation Army to assist in the earthquake relief for Haiti. The banquet and music costs are being covered by individuals of the community and the generous donations of a number of local businesses. The ticket sales will raise $5000 and this will be matched by the federal government to give a grand total of $10 000 for Haitian earthquake relief.
If you still wish to donate, and I am sure that your donation would be graciously accepted, contact 250-615-6859 or 250-631-6100 to see what arrangements can be made.
It appears that the citizens and businesses of Terrace and surrounding areas can always be counted on to help others in need as shown by this fundraiser and the other fundraisers that have happened lately in the local area. Thank you.
