May 28 Fundraiser a Big Success

Our fundraiser on May 28th was a big success. The afternoon started with a talent show put on by the children of St. Andrew’s United Church and the neighbouring community. Awesome talent, and thanks to Joan Yee for organizing it all. After the talent show we went downstairs for a dinner cooked by members of the YEGO Canada Board, presentations by Emmanuel Gatera and Kae Neufeld who had just recently returned from Rwanda, and music and dancing led by YEGO Board member Joy Mukarage. We raised over $5,000.00 for the work of YEGO Rwanda and the donations are still coming in. Thanks to all who made it such a memorable event!
