Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Party For a Purpose a huge success

This year's Formal Gala brought together our amazing community in support of Grace Orphanage in the Congo to improve the lives of children in this challenged country. A HUGE thank you to everyone who helped with decorations and set-up; Jonday Foods and the serving team from NCS and Dover Bay school who, with the help of Sea Salt catering, ensured a spectacular food supply.

Thank you to all our sponsors - without you this event would not be possible. Thank you to everyone who attended and opened wallets for auction items. Last, but certainly not least, thank you to everyone at Island Optimal Health and Moksha Yoga Nanaimo who's idea this originally was and who give of their time and hard work over and over again. THANK YOU, with all your help we raised close to $48,000 towards the construction of a permanent home for 60 orphans. See more at:  

The funds will be used to make the final payment on the land ($17,500) and to start construction on the main dining hall. This building will also be used for the Reading Centre where staff will teach children and widows from the community to read (3.5 million children in Congo are not attending elementary school).

Thank you for partnering with us to change the lives of war orphans in eastern Congo.
