  An Afternoon of Sharing Stories

Where: d’Esterre Seniors’ Centre, Comox

Descriptions of the even:  open

Over 100 guests attended the afternoon. Elizabeth Sebesta, of the Victoria Grandmothers for Africa, who has recently returned from a trip to Uganda and Tanzania, gifted us with an enlightening and inspiring presentation and slideshow. She had visited Stephen Lewis Foundation projects in Uganda, and had attended the Grandmothers’ Gathering in Arusha, Tanzania. Joining Elizabeth was Lisbie Rae, who also shared briefly bout her trip to Africa in 2013.

Following the presentation, the fundraiser, “Mystery Date with a Book,” had our guests checking out books that were hidden in brown paper, with a few notes about what the ‘mystery’ book might be. Over 65 books went home on a date! Our guests enjoyed afternoon tea and delicious homemade goodies, and browsed the great selection of crafted items for sale.

We thank all our guests, and the strong bond of the Glacier Grannies for their commitment to raising awareness, building solidarity, and fundraising for community-based organizations that support African grandmothers and the children in their care. The afternoon raised $1,847.88 for the Foundation.

With grateful thanks to our sponsors: Laughing Oyster Bookshop, Blue Heron Books, Square 1 Travel & Cruise, Mudsharks Coffee Bar, Thrifty Foods and Quality Foods.

  27th World Community Filmfest  

When: Saturday, February 3rd

Where: Four venues in downtown Courtenay

Descriptions of the event:  open

This was an awareness-raising event - an opportunity to tell anyone interested about the Stephen Lewis Foundation, the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign, and the part we Glacier Grannies play. Many who stopped at our table were already aware, but it was nice to hear them commend the work done for the grandmothers of Africa. One AIDS angel was sold for $10.

This event was a flea market rather than a craft sale; however, we made $92, and our presence had the added benefit of raising awareness in the community.
