The ninth annual African Dinner in support of Grans to Grans takes place November 9 in Nelson.

Nelson Grans To Grans host African dinner fundraiser

The Nelson Grans along with a number of Nelson businesses, donate all the food for the preparation of the dinner.

The popular ninth annual African Dinner is being held on Sunday November 9.

Come dine and enjoy a wonderful, authentic African dinner, prepared by the Nelson Grans, with entertainment and a silent auction.

The Nelson Grans along with a number of Nelson businesses, donate all the food for the preparation of the dinner. Much of the produce is grown in the grans gardens during the summer months and used at this annual supper.

Come learn about the indomitable spirit of African grandmothers in a presentation by Nelson Grans group member, Sharon Henderson, who will share her insights from her recent March visit to Stephen Lewis Foundation partner projects in Ethiopia and South Africa.

These projects are helping to turn the tide of HIV/AIDS in Africa.

Dinner is at 5:30 p.m. at the Nelson United Church in the downstairs hall at 602 Silica Street, Nelson.

Tickets are $20 with a sliding scale to $15 and kids under 12 years are $10.

The grandkids will usher you to your table — the same kids who spend hours creating fundraising projects raising funds for the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign. One hundred per cent of the proceeds from the dinner are donated to the Stephen Lewis Foundation’s Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign that supports African grandmothers and the children in their care.

Only 110 tickets are available for the dinner. Tickets can be purchased at Cotton Creek Clothing, 488 Baker Street, Nelson or at the door while quantities last.

Doors open at 4:30 p.m.
