Haiti Fundraisers across the Tricities

The devastating earthquake in Haiti has brought an outpouring of generosity from our community. From text message donations to our firefighters collecting donations to salsa dancing for the cause, the Tricities have come together to help.

Tomorrow evening (Tuesday, Jan 26th), Pasta Polo will be doing a fundraiser for Haiti from 5pm to 9pm. It is a Mediterranean buffet dinner with complementary glass of wine at $20.00 per guest with all the proceeds going to the Red Cross for the Haiti earthquake. The Red Cross will be at the location to collect any additional donations.

On Saturday, February 6th, Our Lady of Fatima Church in Coquitlam will host a dinner and dance to raise funds for earthquake relief. The event will take place in the Fatima Hall, doors open at 6pm and the party goes to midnight. Three bands; Now and Then, Union Jack and the Retrosonics will be performing. Child minding will be available by donation. Tickets are $40 and available at the Church, or call Lorna de Zilva at (604) 931-3180. For more info visit www.notredamedefatima.org

Remember that all donations to a charity overseeing Haitian relief will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the federal government.

If you have any other Haiti relief events or fundraisers, let me know at jon@thev3h.com or on Twitter at twitter.com/thev3h, we’ll be sure to pass it along.
