Grannies selling fundraiser tickets

Tickets must be purchased by Monday for A Burger and Beverage in the Ballroom on May 10 at the Penticton Lakeside

The Grandmothers for Africa South Okanagan need your help. We are organizing our major fundraiser for the year, A Burger and Beverage in the Ballroom, at the Penticton Lakeside on Friday, May 10, from 6-8:30 p.m. This is a great event with lots of fun for the participants.

This year we need to give our ticket numbers to the Penticton Lakeside three days in advance so they have a fair opportunity to make arrangements for food and seating. Please help us out by buying tickets from the front desk of the Lakeside or from one of our members by May 6.

This year we can accommodate 300 guests but the $15 tickets must be purchased before May 6.

Penticton has a reputation of being one of the last-minute capitals of B.C. Many fundraising events are difficult to organize when numbers can’t be determined until the day of the event. Now is your chance to prevent cardiac arrest and sleepless nights for the conveners by purchasing your tickets in advance.

This will be a lively evening with a toonie toss for bottles of local wine, silent and live auctions, including local art and Penticton Vees memorabilia. Dennis Walker, from SO Country Internet Radio will make his debut as one of our MCs.

All the profits go to the Stephen Lewis Foundation to assist African grandmothers raise their grandchildren who have been orphaned by HIV/AIDS.

Plan to buy your tickets early so you won’t be disappointed and miss a first-class event for a very worthwhile cause. Come and join us for A Burger and Beverage in the Ballroom. The grandmothers in Africa will thank you for your support. Their lives depend on it. Buy your tickets today.
