Important Holiday Events

by Lauren Mote

I have two projects I’d like to share with you, in hopes that some of you would like to be involved.

1) Holiday Blood Donation via Canadian Blood Services
“BOUDIN NOIR” The Restaurant Industry Gives Back.
As you know, I donate blood regularly. ‘Tis the season. Each person that participates will receive a Gift Certificate for their generosity for joining me. The group donation date is Tuesday December 15 2009 @ 12:25. A full listing of donation eligibility is attached in this email by PDF. Please me an email at Subject Line: “Boudin Noir” if you’re interested.

2) Food Drive – “Sustainably Stuffed”
From December 12 – 23 SIP Lounge & The Refinery will be asking each guest to bring in a non-perishable food item to support the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society. With your donation, please include a business card, and nightly we will be raffling off Gift Certificate for SIP Lounge & The Refinery – available for use in food and/or beverage. We will also be accepting cash donations on behalf of the GVFBS.
