SUPPER WITH SYRIA - A Delicious Night of Food and Friendship in Support of Syrian Refugees
WHEN: Sunday November 29th, 2015 4pm–9pm
WHERE: Artscape Wychwood Barns (601 Christie St, Toronto, ON M6G 4C7)
WHAT: SUPPER WITH SYRIA – Syrian and Canadian Chefs. Local Chefs will create dishes inspired by the rich culinary history of Syria. The eight food stations will create a roving environment, along with beverage stations specifically tailored to highlight Syrian drinks. Live Syrian music, presentations, and a silent auction of authentic Syrian artifacts will also be featured over the course of the evening.
WHY: One of the newly-elected Liberal government’s campaign promises was to settle 25,000 Syrian refugees to Canada by January 1st, 2016. The timeline will be difficult, but not impossible, which is why community- based initiatives such as ours are crucial in playing a role in assisting in the settlement process.
Before Syria became a place of ongoing war, and before the iconic photograph of Alan Kurdi broke our hearts, there was another Syria, one whose rich history and culture went back thousands of years.
Toronto’s Ward 21 has a proud history of welcoming diverse communities into the fabric of their neighbourhood. This is an extraordinary initiative organized by residents of Ward 21 and other partners. SUPPER WITH SYRIA will provide Torontonians the opportunity to raise funds to settle two Syrian families in our community through the sharing of the warmth and richness of Syrian traditions, culture and culinary delights.
Funds raised go to Toronto Foundation and will then be disbursed to a qualified agency, which will administer the money directly to the families.
