The Gordon Head Refugee Sponsorship Constituent Group offers our heartfelt thanks for the local businesses who supported our recent movie night by providing pizza and refreshments:
Ali Baba Pizza
Dominos Pizza at 902 Esquimalt Road
Cook Culture is hosting a special Syrian food event in support of the Gordon Head Refugee Sponsorship Group. If you love food and cooking, you are probably already familiar with the cooking classes and demonstration events they offer.
This event will be a Chef’s demonstration of how to make a Syrian inspired menu… but this is better than watching a cooking show, because after Chef Meens works his magic with the demonstration, the audience will get to eat a full meal and enjoy a glass of wine!
Check out the mouthwatering menu:
*Come hungry, a full meal and wine will be served

What a great night! Thanks to Keith Fraser and the Big Band of the Greater Victoria Concert Band for fantastic night. We were literally dancing in the aisles … and that was before we found out how much we raised!
Our donations at the door and the refreshment stand (thanks 4th Bay to Bay Brownies and Sparks!) brought in a whopping $1,423.40!
Add to that total the matching contribution from Raymond James, Ltd, and an additional $5,000 in support from them, and that makes for a successful night!
The GHRSCG is thrilled to announce that Raymond James is making a significant contribution to our fundraising efforts.
We look forward to the formal announcement about this donation at the Big Band concert on February 9.
2 Burley Men Moving and Hauling has donated a van and 2 movers help us move donations from the Donation Days to the house we have rented for our family.
They were slated for three hours work, but went far above and beyond what was promised, staying to help us set the furniture in place, and lending a hand with our project.
Thanks so much, Lex and Warren from 2 Burley Men!!
