Terrace group hosts Nepal earthquake relief dinner

The dinner takes place May 23 at the Terrace Sportsplex banquet room

A group of Terrace residents are holding a dinner at the Terrace Sportsplex Banquet Room May 23 with the proceeds going toward victims of last month’s earthquake in Nepal.

The group is the same one which organized a dinner in 2010 for victims of the earthquake in Haiti of that year.

Tickets are $40 and can be purchased by phoning the sportsplex at 250-615-3000.

Organizers have set a deadline for ticket purchases of tomorrow, May 21, so that they know how many people are coming so they can prepare the right amount of food.

Appetizers include pakoras, chai tea and beverages. Dinner includes butter chicken, aloo gobhi, mixed dahl, rice, naan, raita and salad.

Serving of appetizers begins at 5 p.m. followed by dinner at 7 p.m. and there will be live music.

The money raised is going to the Canadian Red Cross, one of the organizations which will have donations to it matched by the federal government.
