Cowichan Green Community, a non-profit organization committed to increasing the sustainability and viability of the Cowichan Region’s food system, is hosting a St. Paddy’s Day Beer and Burger Fundraiser for their Youth Outreach Team on March 19.

From 7:30– 9:30 p.m. enjoy a $20 beer and burger in Duncan at the Oak and Carriage Pub with all proceeds going to the YO Team.

Tickets include your choice of beer, wine, or highball, and a burger with fries or salad. Vegetarian options are available. The event will also feature a silent auction showcasing a variety of donations from local artisans and businesses including art works, handcrafted items, gift baskets, and certificates.

“Each member in the YO Team has many gifts and talents they showcase to their community members, such as science workshops, craft teachings, cooking and baking skills,” said Alyssa Loucks, KinPark Family Drop-In coordinator. “Being on the team gives youth opportunities to utilize their skills, discover their strengths, and build their confidence. The YO Team would love your support, so they can continue to be active superheroes in their community.”

Tickets can be purchased at CGC’s Garden Pantry Store on 360 Duncan St., or at the door. For more details contact Alyssa Loucks or Jennifer Dorby at 250-748-8506 or alyssa@cowichan greencommunity.org.
