Saturday 15 October – The CEE Refugee Family project is a joint effort of members of Congregation Emanu-El and the Lutheran Church of the Cross to sponsor a Syrian refugee family in their move to Victoria. Our Lutheran partners invite you for a fun evening of food, drink, bowling, and exciting silent auction items at The Canadian Brewhouse (#117, 3500 Uptown Blvd) on Saturday, October 15, 2022 from 8:00pm to late.
Your $25 ticket to this event gives you a choice of meal (including a vegetarian option) and your first beer of the evening. There will be bowling lanes available as well as a roof-top batting cage if the weather is cooperative into October. Throughout the night there will be the opportunity to bid on the wide variety of lovely silent auction items.
Our sponsorship team is working through the Intercultural Association of Greater Victoria (ICA) to sponsor this family of six Syrian refugees to start their life anew in Victoria, and while we have met the minimum requirements set by the federal government to move forward with the sponsorship, we still need to raise more funds to support the family during their first year transitioning to life in Canada.
It would be our great pleasure to spend the evening with you, however if you are unable to attend the event but still wish to contribute, we are looking for more items for the silent auction (tax receipts are available for donated items), or you can contribute directly to the family’s support fund through the DONATE button on this webpage: congregationemanuel.ca/donations/refugee-family/
All funds raised will go towards refugee sponsorship, in collaboration with the ICA. If you would like to attend the event, or have an item to donate to the silent auction, please contact Kaitlin at email@example.com
