Speaker: Annual Christmas Luncheon
As usual the luncheon will be held at the Union Club in the ballroom and buffet service will begin at 12pm.
We invite you to arrive early as attendees to our annual Christmas lunch are encouraged to mingle and to purchase raffle tickets at a cost of $20 (cash only) before lunch. There will also be a cash bar available for this luncheon. There is no speaker and the meeting will be spent enjoying a good meal with our peers.
Guests are requested to bring a small gift that costs $20 to be donated and used as a raffle prize. Bottles of wine, chocolates and gift cards seem to be the most common items.
As always, all proceeds of the raffle, plus an additional $500.00 from the Estate Planning Council of Victoria will be donated to our featured charity:
The Harmony Foundation of Canada [Canada Revenue Agency Charitable Number 10808 3973 RR0001] Michael Bloomfield will give us a brief overview of the socks for humanity program.
