The Oakridge United Church here in London is holding a fun and creative fundraiser on Friday October 30th on behalf of Refugees to Canada. Starting at 6:30 p.m., there will be a “camp site” with overnight tents, hot dogs, s’mores, music and dialogue with local refugees. There will be a breakfast the next morning at 8.
The location is 970 Oxford St. West… in the church parking lot!
This is a first event in a series, aiming ultimately to raise $60,000 from the Presbytery of London.
Alex Scholz describes the event as follows:
The event will involve participants tenting over night to gather pledges to support the initiative. We are strongly encouraging folks to come out for any part of the program that seems of interest to them and do not expect them to spend the night outside. This is an all ages event and everyone is welcome including those who would like to drop-in for segments of the program. Anyone who would like to tent over night and collect pledges should email us at email@example.com or visit our facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/refugeestocanada.
