On Dec. 7th, 2013 the Salt Spring chapter of CFUW held a very successful Christmas fund raising lunch. It was a gala event with a hostess table full of delectable treats for guests to buy, a silent auction and a live auction. Proceeds are being used to support the Hope Project – a co-action between the CFUW SSI and the Commonwealth Countries’ League Education Fund (CCLEF) in the UK. The project’s aim is to assist needy but academically deserving girls to continue secondary school education. Up to 40 girls from Commonwealth countries are sponsored by the club and individual members each year.
As well, there was a raffle to raise funds to help with the administrative costs of the club. Grand prize was a Kobo Arc Reader
