“The Magic of Giving”

Fund Raising Dinner

Catered by Julie Forde

Saturday, September 30th, 2017

First Baptist Church
$20 per person

All proceeds go to
Operation Eyesight Universal

For more than 30 years various members and groups in this congregation have felt moved to support the incredible work of sight restoration provided globally by the Calgary-based Canadian charity, Operation Eyesight Universal.

In 2013, as part of the 50 years celebration a decision was made to hold a fund raising banquet to honour the 50 years of service started by a Baptist medical missionary, Dr. Ben Gullison in 1933, and formalized into a support organization in 1963 by four Rotarians in Calgary under the leadership of Art Jenkins.

This year another such sharing of support will be held in our banquet area on September 30th at 6:00pm. The meal will be provided by Julie Forde and her amazing team of workers. The usual great roast beef dinner with all the fixings.

Get your tickets now from John Wallace or the church office.
