Nothing beats a picnic in the park with your friends and family, especially when you can enrich the lives of others in the process.
The Whole Way House is a charitable organization founded by siblings Jenny and Josh Konkin. Based out of the ground floor of the Avalon Hotel, the organization seeks to combat the loneliness commons amongst residents of the Downtown Eastside, through “family dinners,” games nights, cooking classes, haircuts, and more.
Earls Restaurant will be serving slinging BBQ ribs, burgers, coleslaw, corn on the cob, watermelon, and other summer favourites. Tickets are by donation and proceeds from the event will go towards the Whole Way House.
When: Saturday, August 22; 5 to 7:30 p.m.
Where: Prospect Point Picnic Area – 6200 Stanley Park Drive, Vancouver
Price: By donation
