Partera AUCTION and CONCERT: Thank you!

Aug 27, 2015

Thank you to all of our donors – all 45 of you with donated items ranging from $35 to $2,400 in value!  And so many from our new neighbours!
Thank you to Dalton Jantzi, our superb volunteer auctioneer!
Thank you to the wonderful women of Primrose United Church who served scrumptious food and drinks – and donated it all to this good work!
Thank you to Martha Chaves – Oh, my, I did not know you were so funny, my friend!
Thank you to the Campfire Poets who played music we all loved and had us up dancing!  What a delight!
Thank you to those who bid on and bought items.  So much appreciated!
We had four goals:  (1) To have fun! (check!)  (2) to build community (check!); (3) to raise the profile of Partera and Partera’s work (check!) and, (4) to raise funds to meet our obligations to partners and expand our work of peacemaking around the world.  On three of four, we did wonderfully well!  The fourth, not so much.  But that’s OK!  there are other ways to provide one-off and sustaining, ongoing support for current and new projects in Uganda, North East India, Colombia and Mindanao.  Go here to find out.  Go here and here and here to read stories from Uganda:  urgent-appeal-help-keep-girls-in-school.html Keeping Girls in School and south-sudanuganda-border-conflict-turning-enemies-into-neigh.
