WAKEFIELD GRANNIES AIRMILES---A NEW VENTURE for 2012!

Wakefield Grannies Take Off Fund

As we enter our 8th year of partnership with the Gogos of Alexandra Township in South Africa, we realize the need to visit the women and children with whom we have been associated. Thus, to enable this, we are approaching our generous supporters in the wider community to donate sufficient Aeroplan miles.

Our drive, from Feb.8 to March 8, finishes appropriately on International Womens’ Day.

Each 1000 miles donated will qualify for a draw in a donated exquisite hand made 14 kt gold citrine pendant and earrings, valued at $800 to be won by one lucky donor of Aeroplan points. Draw to be held on Women’s Day, March 8th at Molo’s in Wakefield. Names are entered once for every 1,000 points donated to the Wakefield Grannies Take Off Fund.

HOW TO DONATE

To donate miles we need your signature on the Aeroplan form, which is available here by clicking on the Aeroplan logo just below, or from any of the Grannies.

Signed forms can similarly be handed to:
-  a Granny
-  faxed to 819 456 3551 or
-  mailed to Norma Geggie, Box 188 Wakefield, Qc. JOX 3GO.

Remember that Aeroplan miles can expire (and then they are lost), so that this form of activity in your aeroplan file can avoid this.

Closing Event

Closing event from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on March 8th, 2012 at Café Molo in Wakefield when the draw for the jewellery will be held. The closing reception will be filled with music from the award-winning singer and Wakefield Granny Chris McLean and the Chris Corcoron Trio. It will also feature great food provided by the Wakefield Grannies themselves. The Grannies will continue to collect Aeroplan Miles right up to the draw at 6:45 p.m. Admission is free.

Following the reception the group will walk down the street to the famous Black Sheep Inn to watch TITTY TALKS, an HIV/AIDS fund raising show that wowed audiences in December with its inspiring, insightful and humorous stories told by women of different generations with different perspectives for women and the men who love them.

Walking the edge between laughter and tears, Titty Talks takes us through the highs and lows that together celebrate all things “Woman”. Combining stories from women of various backgrounds and generations, this is a collaborative play about Bra Straps and Babies, as well as Coming Of Age, Survival, and Womanhood at its best.

Titty Talks is a collaborative series of monologues about women their breasts, bodies and souls.

International Woman’s Day, Thursday, March 8, 2012 tickets $20 available @ Compact Music and The Black Sheep.
