DinnerParty YVR – Clean Water for Africa Fundraiser

Video produced by Wakefield Productions

We organized two storytelling fundraiser dinners in partnership with Social Bites and DinnerPartyYVR to raise awareness and funds for Global Aid Network. 31 people attended and over $1700 was raised, giving over 200 people in Africa access to clean water for 25 years.

That evening we told the story of the water crisis in Africa, where many people live without access to clean water. We described what GAiN was doing by providing water wells to villages in Benin, Tanzania, Togo, and Ethiopia. We told the story through our four-course meal, giving each menu item a theme.

MENU:
1st course: ‘The water crisis’ – Ricotta Gnocchi with crispy pangritata, chives and spiced hazelnut dust
2nd course: ‘The water tragedy’ – Seafood Trio, snapper, nori, bonito with kombu dashi broth
3rd course: ‘The water opportunity’ – Pork Two ways, vegetable terrine, lavender potato mousseline sauce
4th course: ‘Sweet water’ – Poached Pear, strawberry reisling gel, elderflower foam
