March 10 ,2010 fundraising

WCI's Community Fundraising Dinner
Wednesday, March 10
Emmanual United Church, Waterloo

This year the Multicultural Club and the Human Rights Club are combining forces to host a community dinner to raise funds for the Brick by Brick Campaign. The goal this year is to raise $8,500 to build a school in a tsunami ravaged region of Sri Lanka. With your help, this dinner can raise over $3000!
Come out and help celebrate the immanent Spring Equinox, the arrival of March Break, and WCI's 50th Anniversary by helping another school celebrate its first. It promises to be a great evening of international cuisine donated by local restaurants and entertainment provided by members of the Multi cast and Martisor!
Tickets are $30 each, or a table of eight could cost your crew an even $200.
We are also looking for further donations of food to supplement our hearty buffet.


Martisor will participate with a suite of Romanian songs:

1. Bun ii vinul Ghiurghiuliu
2. Aseara ti-am luat basma
