Dinner and slide show fundraiser

Slide Show: 7:00-8:30pm
Kamloops United Church, 421 St Paul Street (at the corner of 4th Ave)
For over 2,000 years, the indigenous tribes of the mountainous rice terraces of northern Philippines have grown rice. Challenged and threatened by development on their lands and traditions, a group of fair trade rice farmers have formed a cooperative not only to market their rice but as a way to preserve their culture, heirloom seeds and the rice terraces. Presented by the Kamloops United Church Global and Community Action Group, enjoy a Filipino dinner featuring Ulikan Red Rice, Violet Sticky Rice and more followed by a slide show. Help these farmers succeed.
Ticket prices: Dinner and slide show, $25/person OR Slide show only, $10/person. Tickets available from Kamloops United Church office or call 250-372-3020 or visit www.kamloopsunited.ca for more information.
