Pasta Dinner – May 18, 2018 @ Grand Gardens Downtown

Our Community Council will be hosting a Jump into Spring Pasta Dinner fundraiser on Friday May 18, 2018 to raise funds to cover our athlete’s expenses.

Cocktails are at 5:30pm and dinner at 6:30pm.

This event will include draws for prizes, and we are looking for donations to contribute to this initiative.

If you can donate an item we’ll gladly drop by to pick up the item along with some documentation to identify the value of the item donated.

The deadline for donations is April 27, 2018.

If you would like more information, wish to sponsor an athlete, donate an item for our draw table or purchase the pasta dinner tickets ($25), please contact [email protected]

All proceeds from this fundraiser will be used to assist with the expenses related to the transportation, meals, accommodations and uniforms for our three athletes who have been selected to participate in the National Bowling Championships in PEI (May 13-17). Find more on that here.

Thank you in advance for your support!
