Bowen Rotary invites you to a Valentine’s fundraiser!

Rotary Club hosting fundraiser for the Peka project on Saturday, February 10

The Rotary Club of Bowen Island is well known not only for inviting interesting speakers but also for supporting many projects in our own community and abroad.

Now we are trying a new gig – a Mexican Valentine’s evening on February 10 as a fundraiser for one of our favourite projects – Peka.

Matthew Harrison, a Rotarian and well-known Bowen Islander, is spearheading the Peka project. We are raising  funds for an orphanage in Lesotho, Africa, specifically for children 6-18 years old who have aged out of the foster care system and have no place to go.

Peka will offer shelter, safety and life skills to kids who would otherwise be forgotten.  Our Bowen Island Rotary club has played a major role in raising funds which are almost doubled by Rotary International.

In our efforts to raise more funds for equipment, furniture and other installations so badly needed by Peka, the club has decided that a Valentine’s evening celebration with our friends and supporters would be a great idea. Carmen Dives, also a Rotary member, originally from Mexico, and many Bowen Rotary members are making this event a reality!

Matthew Harrison and Peter Parkin, The Howe Sounds, will be playing fun tunes while we eat a delicious Mexican-themed dinner (vegetarian option available) and enjoy margaritas, wine and other bebidas. First drink free with a cash bar after, and the evening goes from there! 

This will be happening on Saturday, February 10. Doors open at 6 pm at the Tunstall Bay Clubhouse, located at 1666 Tunstall Boulevard.

The Margarita Mobile will be available for a safe ride home – donations accepted. All this for only $85 per person. Plus, the satisfaction of supporting a great cause! There will be a silent auction, so be prepared.

Please invite your friends to join you in making this a fun evening! Tickets available online at shop.bowen and Phoenix Books.
