Dinner will help feed others who rely on Esquimalt soup kitchen

Rainbow Kitchen Society hosting fundraiser dinner at Victoria church

Help feed the hungry by sitting down to a homemade meal at the Victoria Rainbow Kitchen Society’s second fundraising dinner and silent auction.

The event happens at 6 p.m. on Saturday, April 14 at the St. Matthias Anglican Church hall, 600 Richmond Rd. The cost is $50 and tax receipts will be issued.

The auction will feature volunteer auctioneer Roshan Vickery from Kilshaw’s Auctioneers Ltd. and his assistant Trinda Reed, performing as The Fabulous Miss Rosie Bitts.

Last year the fundraiser generated more than $11,000 for the soup kitchen, which relocated to Esquimalt United Church from Victoria West. The Rainbow Kitchen, which celebrated its grand opening Feb. 27, feeds an average of 110 people a day.

For fundraiser tickets, please call Deborah Hunt at 250-384-2930 or email deborah@patrickhunt.ca. To donate an auction item, please contact Lynne Reed Limbert at 250-598-1103 or email lynne@limbert.com.
