On June 8th, 2012, Youth Education Farms (YEF) will be holding their 3rd Annual Fundraising Gala at Birks Jewelers in Vancouver. YEF is a Vancouver and Swaziland based charity that financially supports tuition of orphaned Swazi youth through the promotion of sustainable businesses.
There are an estimated 120,000 orphans and vulnerable children in Swaziland, which is a direct result of death from AIDS. There has also been a drastic impact on economically productive citizens aged 15 to 64. By developing profitable businesses and introducing commerce to poverty-stricken communities, YEF creates sustainable sources of revenue used for children’s education and community development.
If you are interested in supporting a great cause, this is a wonderful and fun way to do so. Tickets to the gala include an open bar, Canapés, and entertainment provided by The Young Executives. As well, you will have the chance to bid on exclusive auction items and to mingle with 350 of your fellow fine Vancouverites!
Event location: Birks Jewelers- 698 West Hastings Street, Vancouver
