Summer BBQ Fundraiser | True Vision Ghana

A taste of Ghana was brought to a quiet Calgary neighborhood on June 26, 2011 as  True Vision Ghana celebrated their 3rd Annual Summer BBQ Fundraiser.  As Kalista met up with the all the TVG volunteers on the morning of the event, everyone was in high spirits despite the morning forecast of rain and wind.  An impressive culinary spread of Ghanian dishes, assorted baked goodies, and a colorful craft sale of authentic Ghanian goods, and homemade shea butter products were assembled indoors.  It turned out to be a perfect afternoon for an outdoor BBQ, as the sunshine appeared just as guests arrived.

Thanks to all who attended, donated food and materials, and volunteered to make this a huge success, as we were treated to some fantastic food, vibrant music, an entertaining Ghanian dance demonstration, and informative presentation by Evelyn and Hazel on TVG’s past year of projects.  In total, over $6,300 was raised from this event towards TVG!  The funds will be used to run two projects in Ghana: Care and Aid Program for the 40 AIDs orphans that TVG supports & the Education and Training Program where prevention using education is provided to 285 junior highs school students. We are most appreciative to have been a part of this cause:)For more information on how you may support True Vision Ghana please visit www.truevisionghana.org or check out the Giving Back section on Kalista. See you all next year!
