We are pleased to be hosting another Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser for the Afghani family of six that UCM is sponsoring! We are very excited that the family has now been accepted to come to Canada and will probably be arriving in the next few months! We are fundraising with delicious pancakes, berries and outdoor games at Janis' expansive, enchanting backyard. Tickets are $30 for adults and free for children under 12. Tickets have to be purchased by Tuesday, September 5th so we know how much food to buy. Everyone will gather at the UCM Great Hall parking lot at 84 South Service Rd. (near Hurontario and and the QEW) at 9:45am, Saturday, September 9th. We will carpool you to Janis’ place, a 5 minute drive away. In case of rain, the event will be inside at the Great Hall. UCM member Sally met the father of this family while doing international volunteer work. The father ran an informal cafe to bridge cultural divides and soothe tensions between groups in a refugee camp. He returned to Afghanistan several years ago to care for his ill father. After returning to Afghanistan, he was employed by the previous Afghan government, which has made him and his family a target since the Taliban takeover in August 2021. You can purchase tickets by transferring funds to Cathy Tafler at firstname.lastname@example.org or on eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/pancake-breakfast-fundraiser-afghan-family-refugee-sponsorship-tickets-694431101117?aff=oddtdtcreator Thank you for your support!
