BENEFITING: FEED NOVA SCOTIA

EVENT: Nova Scotia's Biggest Potluck

EVENT DATE: Oct 22, 2016

Mark Fogarty

THE STORY:

Working at FEED NOVA SCOTIA has given me an opportunity to meet people who need the assistance of food banks, shelters and hot meals programs through the province. For the vast majority of them what they're looking for is a hand-up not a hand-out. My role at FEED NOVA SCOTIA gives me the solemn privilege of interviewing these folks as they share their story... and it always brings tears to my eyes. (please take a few moments to watch Kenneth's story in the photo/video loop on the left)

Things I take for granted are luxuries for many of them.

Did you know that for every $2 donated, FEED NOVA SCOTIA can delivery 3 meals!!! That's amazing!

We want to help out with this potluck fundraiser but we're not actually going to have a potluck.

WHAT THE WHAT!!??!!

Well, we're knee deep into renovations and there's no chance we're inviting people over in this mess. Plus... to be honest... inviting a bunch of people over to our house just isn't our cup of tea because we're a bit antisocial like that.

However, that shouldn't stop my friends from helping us help hungry Nova Scotians.

And because I know most of my friends and family are as shallow as kiddie pools, I'm going to throw out of bit of incentive to donate. I've asked three of my favorite local restaurants if they would give me a gift certificate I could dangle as prizes so far I've got two prizes and fingers crossed for the third one.

From John's Lunch (voted best fish and chips in Canada) I've got a $30 gift certificate, hat and coffee mug!

From The Orient (best Chinese food you'll find in the city) I've got a 5 course meal for 4 people!

For every $10 you donate, you get one ballot entered in the draw. So if you donate... ahem... $100, you'll get 10 ballots in the draw. How sweet is that!

A couple rules about this:

  • Winners will be chosen on Tuesday October 25th in front of witnesses at FEED NOVA SCOTIA using a random number generator.
  • Once a person has won one prize, they will not be eligble to win another prize in the draw.
  • Mark and Melissa Fogarty aren't eligible to win any prizes (for Melissa, just being married to Mark is prize enough)

Please, please, please help out this worthy cause by donating and sharing it with your family, friends and rich enemies.
