Event description

Description

Please join the Bonnie Doon Community Refugee Sponsorship Group for A Taste of Syria, a fundraiser in support of the Marees, a refugee family from Syria now living in our community. The event will be held on Saturday, February 9, 2019 at Bonnie Doon Hall in Edmonton, Canada. Funds raised at a Taste of Syria will go directly to support this family in gaining their economic independence.


FOOD AND DRINK

Guests will have the chance to sample the delicious foods of Syria. We’ll be serving a variety of appetizers (including vegetarian options) and desserts. There will be a cash bar with a nice selection of wine and beer.

SILENT AUCTION

The silent auction is a fantastic opportunity to bid on terrific items, including sporting tickets, gift cards, sailing excursion on Lake Wabamun, Middle Eastern cooking class in a local home and more! To donate an item or for more information about the silent auction, please email karmenmasson@shaw.ca

MUSIC

Live music will be provided by Meran Currie-Roberts and Rafael Hoekman, cellists with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra.

Roy Abdalnour will perform traditional Middle Eastern music, accompanied by Khaled Nakkouzi on keyboard. Roy was a professional violinist in Syria before coming to Edmonton. Roy lives in neighbouring Strathearn.

DANCE

Belediyya Dance Company, which has performed at events such as Edmonton Heritage Days and the Syrian Arts Festival, will do several Syrian dance numbers.

PROCEEDS

Funds raised at the event will go towards travel expenses incurred by the Marees when coming to Edmonton in May 2018. Although the federal government initially paid for the family’s flights, the Marees must repay a loan of $9,000. Travel expenses were not covered by our group’s initial fundraising.

It's sure to be a fun night of entertainment, good food and the opportunity to bid on some awesome items, while supporting a good cause. We hope to see you there! For more information or to get involved in this event, please contact Carol at chtravels@gmail.com
