St. Patrick’s Day Tea

Fundraiser event by Valley GoGo Sisters Saturday, March 17th

Submitted by Valley GoGo Sisters

Please join the Valley GoGo Sisters for our annual Tea and Bake Sale at Christ Church Trinity, from 2-4 pm on Saturday, March 17th, St Patrick’s Day.

It’s a comfy place to socialize with friends while enjoying a tea or coffee and lots of home baked goodies. Admission is by donation.

This is a Grandmothers to Grandmothers event as all proceeds will be directed to the Stephen Lewis Foundation, particularly earmarked for the Grandmothers’ Campaign in Africa.

Grandmothers there are holding communities together as they raise large families of children orphaned by the AIDS pandemic. They are courageous, resilient women who display astonishing reserves of love for children and support for each other.

Canadians have raised more than $24 million for African grandmothers through the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign. Resources from the Campaign are invested directly at the community level, with grassroots organizations that provide grandmothers and the children in their care with supports that include food, educational supplies, uniforms and school fees, medical care, HIV counselling and testing, adequate housing and bedding, counselling and support groups, home visits, and much more.

Our local GoGo’s have contributed more than $100,000, raised in our generous Valley community.
