Child Haven hosts Indian dinner

Oceanside chapter celebrates 21st year helping children in remote countries

The Oceanside chapter of Child Haven invites everyone to enjoy a classic Indian dinner while helping children worldwide when it hosts its 21st annual Fundraising dinner Friday beginning at 6 p.m. at the Parksville Community Centre.

The colourful event features a delicious Indian dinner, a variety of entertainment, a marketplace and silent auction of exotic wares and jewellery, and a no-host bar.

Child Haven International is a Canadian charity, started in 1985 by Fred and Bonnie Cappuccino of Ontario, that provides homes to destitute children in India, Nepal, Tibet and Bangladesh and nurtures these children into becoming functioning members of their communities.

Every year from Victoria to Halifax, hundreds of volunteers put on fundraisers like this one to raise money for Child Haven’s ‘kids’. Many eventually become interns and travel to the homes.

Support this amazing humanitarian organization and meet Fred and Bonnie Cappuccino at tomorrow’s dinner. Doors open at 5:30; tickets are $25 for adults, $10 for children 12-under. Advance tickets are available at Fireside Books and Amrikkos in Parksville, at Arbutus Fashions in Qualicum Beach, or online at www.childhaven.ca.

For more information, call 250-752-0968 or 250-752-7404.
