A Taste of Africa: A Women's Dinner
Saturday, February 24, 2007
A community dinner for women by women: Grannies in Spirit invited their neighbours to an African dinner featuring traditional African dishes, some great drumming, and a presentation about the work of the Stephen Lewis Foundation. There was also a silent auction and market place where we sold African-product jewellery and trinkets.
One hundred and thirty women came together, helped to cook and serve the meal, and donate to the Foundation. It was an evening of fantastic sisterhood. Through their generosity we raised more than $8,000 for African grandmothers.
