Savour Our Neighbourhood
The Mount Pleasant Family Centre Society, a small non-profit organization dedicated to helping local and immigrant families, is seeking event volunteers for the Savour Our Neighbourhood event on March 7, 2019.
SON 2019 will be 6th annual fundraising event. Enjoy a selection of local beer and wine, fantastic music, auctions, draws and more – with live entertainment by comedian Charlie Demers, a Vancouver local nominated for a 2018 Juno for his album Fatherland.
This year, we are featuring the Society’s vital work with refugee and immigrant families. We are thrilled that Savour our Neighbourhood 2019 will be catered by Tayybeh, an award-winning local food company and social enterprise that supports newly arrived Syrian women.
We hope you’ll join us for this exciting celebration of food, drink and community!
