Grans to Grans host African dinner Nov. 8

The popular ninth annual African dinner fundraiser is being held on Sunday, Nov. 8.

The popular ninth annual African dinner fundraiser is being held on Sunday, Nov. 8.

Enjoy an authentic African dinner, prepared by the Nelson Grans to Grans, with entertainment and silent auction.  The Nelson grans donate all foods for the preparation of the dinner. Much of the produce is grown in their own gardens.

This year the grans welcome guest speaker Ntahuba Parfaite, pastor of a church in the capital of Burundi. Parfaite has organized an HIV/AIDS clinic and other services for mothers and children and is an impassioned speaker.

Nelson’s own Paul Landsberg and Don MacDonald will entertain with gypsy music. The inspired grandkids of Ymir, who spend hours creating projects to raise funds for the Grandmothers Campaign, will offer their handiwork for sale.

All of the proceeds of the dinner are donated to the Stephen Lewis Foundation’s Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign, which supports African grandmothers and the children in their care orphaned by HIV/AIDS.

The Nelson Grans to Grans work to raise funds and awareness in solidarity with these indomitable women.

Dinner is at 5:30 p.m. (doors open at 4:30) at the Nelson United Church Hall, 602 Silica St.
