You are invited to the 6th Annual Britannia Garden Party Fundraiser on the evening of July 7th. The location of this event is the Britannia Secondary School sports field which will be turned into one large garden party. In the garden you will be served a gourmet meal made from local fare which will include veg and non-veg entrees, salads, corn on the cob, nugget potatoes and more. For dessert, you can expect homemade pie and ice cream. As this is a fundraiser, there will be a Silent Auction component to the evening and we hear over 50 items have been donated by East Van merchants, services, breweries, restaurants and cafes. Some of the names we’ve heard that have donated include the Licorice Parlour, Kali 1000 Commercial, Wonderbucks Wonderful Living, Fratelli Bakery, Merchant’s Oyster Bar, Bikes on the Drive, Sunset Grill Vancouver, Ocean and Crow Yoga/Space and Arriva Italian Restaurant. The funds raised from this event will be used to teach kids about gardening and community. This is a family friendly event with games and activities for all ages, live local music, a storyteller for the kids and a juice bar featuring homemade ginger beer (non-alcoholic), lemonade, kambucha and iced tea. Tickets for this event are $30 per person, children aged 6-12 are $15 and children under 6 are free. Added bonus when you buy your ticket, the Commercial Drive Scotiabank will be matching funds. So for every $30 ticket sold, $60 will be raised. To purchase your ticket(s) for this fun event, call the Britannia Community Centre at 604-718-5800, or Ian at 604.718.5895. You can also email the Grandview Woodland Food Connection at email@example.com. This event will go ahead rain or shine, and sunshine is expected by organizers, but should they need to go indoors, they will relocate to the Cafeteria. Come out and support this great community event!
