Flora and Fauna Fall Fundraising Dinner
Tickets purchased online after October 27 will be held for you at the event. A limited number of tickets will be available for purchase at the door!
MAWA’s Fall Supper is back … the dress-up culinary event of the year. This year’s theme is plants and animals, and whatever that means to you. Bust out those boas! Costume yourself in chintz! Lay on the leopard spots! Want an excuse to wear a floral summer gown in November? This is it! An all-you-can-eat buffet of infinite deliciousness awaits you, including vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options. Featuring fortune telling and more! Plus you can bid on some of the many skills possessed by the MAWA community. Last year, Board member Alanna Yuen offered to provide a one-on-one tutorial about women in heavy metal. Who knows what will be on offer this year?
Flora and Fauna is being held in support of MAWA’s Legacy Fund at the Winnipeg Foundation. Our aim is to grow this pot of money so we will be able to use the annual interest to pay for the Foundation Mentorship Program, ensuring that it will continue in perpetuity. An exciting and ambitious goal! Already, thanks to your support, the fund has grown from less than $500 eight years ago to $78,280 today. As with everything at MAWA, by all of us working together, we can achieve so much.
The Fall fundraising dinner always sells out, so act fast. And please, if you have a skill or an experience for us to auction, drop Alison a note at firstname.lastname@example.org. Willing to loan your cabin for a weekend or offer a playdate with your kittens? Want to teach someone how to make sauerkraut or change a tire? We’d really appreciate your contribution.
