The GOODS from Campagnolo Roma
Vancouver, BC | We are so excited to invite you to our first special event of 2018, Propolis: A Charity Dinner Benefitting Adolescent Apiculture Education.
Join us at Campagnolo ROMA on Wednesday, February 28th at 7pm for a celebratory night of eating and drinking to raise money for Brian Saunders’s ‘Beekeeping 11’ program. The dinner will consist of five courses featuring honey from Raintown Bees (Brian’s other project), alongside locally produced beverage pairings.
Campagnolo ROMA’s chef de cuisine Jessie McMillan first met Brian while cooking at a long table dinner at Fraser Common Farm in Aldergrove, where Brian has a small apiary.
When Brian approached Campagnolo ROMA with the idea of doing a dinner using his honey to benefit the program, which teaches skills to young offenders at the Burnaby Youth Custody Services Centre, it seemed like a natural fit.
“Any time we can increase awareness of, and connection to our foodsystems we have a responsibilty to do everything we can, especially when that education is directed to young people. This program has the added benefit of teaching important skills to potentially marginalized or disadvantaged kids which makes it that much more important for us to support” says Jessie McMillan of Campagnolo ROMA.
Tickets are $110 per guest, and can be purchased HERE, with all proceeds going to benefit this amazing cause.
