Child Haven Fundraiser: Bollywood! at CP Canoe Club

Oct 14

|

Bollywood on the Mississippi!

Beat the autumn chill by immersing yourself in warm south-east Asian culture with traditional music, a “Bollywood” dance show (and dance lesson!), and even a sari fashion show! Delicious Indian/Bangladeshi appetizers will be offered all evening courtesy of Shafali Indian restaurant, and a cash bar will also be available throughout the event.

You will be awed by the beautiful one-of-a-kind items on the silent auction table, and the amazing array of handcrafted goods on sale from India, Nepal, Tibet and Bangladesh, all in support of Child Haven International. Even the colourful saris are for sale!

Child Haven International, a charitable organization founded in 1985 by Bonnie and Fred Cappuccino of Maxville, ON, supports over one thousand destitute women and children across India, Nepal, Bangladesh and Tibet. Bonnie and Fred have been awarded the Order of Canada for their ongoing charitable work. This year you will get a chance to meet them in person, as they will both be attending this event!Special guests this year also include Ottawa’s “Bollywood for Fun” dance troupe, who will entertain you — and even teach you a few dance steps if you’re game!

Doors open at 6:30pm. Families and children are welcome — a children’s activity area will be set up on-site for the evening. There is no set admission fee to this event — just a suggested donation of $20 per person to Child Haven International. However, any amount you can give is appreciated.

As there is no admission fee, we will not be selling tickets. Simply let us know if you’ll be joining us and we will add your name to the guest list. Be sure to invite your friends!
