Global Gala with Horizon
Sat, Jun 15
Southern Alberta Ethnic Association Multicultural - Lethbridge


Time: 6 p.m.

On Saturday June 15, 2019, the Interact Club of Lethbridge will host our fourth annual fundraiser, Interact Club of Lethbridge Global Gala at the Southern Alberta Ethnic Association in support of construction at the APU Malawi Girl’s School in Malawi, and in support of the Lethbridge YMCA Strong Kids Program. The Interact Club of Lethbridge is the high school version of Rotary, and is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Lethbridge.

In Africa millions of girls do not have the opportunity to get an education. Most parents cannot afford to educate their daughters, so they are forced to stay home, or are married off by the age of 15 or 16. The APU Malawi Girls School is a residential secondary school founded by Canadian teacher Christie Johnson and Malawian teacher Memory Mdyetseni to provide a quality education for many Malawian girls who would otherwise not be able to get an education, to have a brighter future, and a better tomorrow. It is a safe place, where they can live, grow and learn in a positive environment. The APU Malawi Girls School empowers these young women through education they would otherwise not receive. “If you educate a woman, you educate a family, if you educate a girl, you educate the future."

The Lethbridge YMCA Strong Kids Program provides underprivileged kids the opportunities they need to live healthier, happier lives, today and in the future. One in five children in the Lethbridge area is currently living in a household that is below the poverty line. However, these children still deserve access to safe, supportive programs and services where they can grow.

The Lethbridge YMCA Strong Kids Program directly supports low income, underprivileged children, teens and families in our community so they can participate in recreational, health and wellness, social and leadership programming. The Strong Kids Program sends low income children to attend day camps, overnight camps, in need youth to attend leadership development programs to build their skills, character and self-esteem, provides these children and youth the chance to learn to swim, and the opportunity to participate in a recreation or physical activity.

This wonderful evening is a most memorable celebration! Guests will enjoy a delicious internationally themed buffet dinner presented by Bavaru Catering, amazing cultural dancers and entertainment, as well as a dance to follow, featuring the band “Horizon”. We will also enjoy a Silent Auction with many unique items.

With your help Interact is able to make our community and our world a better place!
