Safari Soiree Aids Rotary Mission

A Sept. 27 Safari Soiree will raise funds for the 2012 Rotary mission to Ghana, Africa.

Fifteen people are planning to go to Ghana in November for 16 days and the money raised will help support the building of a primary school, the digging of a well, buying mosquito bed nets and plans for an eyeglass clinic.

“We are so blessed in Canada. I just thought I’m a normal person and normal people can make a difference and everybody in Windsor can help us make that difference for these people in Africa,” Kim Spirou, past president of the Windsor Roseland Rotary Club who plans to go to Ghana, said Thursday.

The Safari Soiree fundraiser is being hosted by Spirou and Laura Joy at the Panache Restaurant at 53 Pitt St. from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Sept. 27.

The event includes hors d’oeuvres, wine, a silent auction and music.

Tickets are $100 a person and will include a tax receipt. Donations of $20 or more will receive a tax receipt.

Spirou said the Rotary needs about $18,000 to reach its $35,000 goal for the trip. RSVP by Sept. 25 by calling Spirou at 519-551-3747.
