1st Annual Operation: Full Kettle - Helping Families Affected by Poverty

What’s better than a holiday party? A holiday party centered around eating different types of cuisine all in the hopes of raising money for families who have been affected by poverty.

This Thursday, December 20th, 2012 is the first annual food tasting fundraiser, brought to you by Operation: Full Kettle. This event will take you on a unique culinary journey around the world (in the comfort of one space!) by bringing together some of Vancouver’s trendiest restaurants: From Caché Bistro, to Suika Snackbar, and food vendors Almondine and Good Health Nutrition (& many more), there’s a bit of everything for everyone. Guests will be able to experience an assortment of delicious goodies through canapé-style appetizers.

Our city’s income disparity has crowned Vancouver first in the nation for highest poverty statistics. On behalf of the Salvation Army Community & Family Services, 100% of the proceeds raised will benefit families who are affected by poverty this year. An amazing team of sponsors – from local restaurants, to EA Games, Cypress Mountain, Warner Brothers Canada  & same-day delivery logistics company Rolls Right Ltd. – will be working together towards one goal: to provide a merrier Christmas to those who need it the most. Their diverse support of sponsors is a great example of how helping one another has no boundaries.

Aside from all the wonderful feasting, there will be a raffle with prizes such as a Panasonic 42” LCD television, and memberships to Steve Nash Fitness Sports (great way to work off all that food you’ll be eating). In addition to the awesome prizes, they’ll have DJ Mikxter providing entertainment, and guest speaker of the night, Tracy Edwards, share her personal experiences to highlight the importance of this charitable cause.

This event is brought to you by a group of very driven (and pretty)  individuals wanting to making a difference, let’s help them in reaching their charitable goal of $10,000. Remember to bring a friend, or 3, and most importantly bring your appetite!  Tickets are $35 at the door, but get your early bird tickets here. And if you’d like to contribute, donate here and don’t forget to like them on Facebook! It’ll be a great night of beautiful women doing beautiful things. See you Thursday!
