Dining Out For Life Event Date:
April 25, 2013
Dine out to help those suffering in Kamloops with chronic illness!
ASK invites you to become a part of a positive movement that will assist those in your community suffering from chronic illness (i.e., HIV/AIDS, cancer, hepatitis, mental illness, chronic respiratory diseases and diabetes). This year’s Dining Out for Life on Thursday, April 25, 2013, will go to support those in our community who live in substandard housing to improve their quality of life. Private landlords in Kamloops struggle to keep their rents low and provide a proper home to those who cannot afford market rents. Private landlords will submit proposed projects to make improvements to those units housing those with chronic illness. A panel of community people will decide which projects will be completed based on a criteria that the project will include quality of life. ASK completes this work through the help of their staff and volunteers. No administration fees are taken out of these fundraising dollars. All funds go directly to help those in your community. No fund are paid directly to landlords.
