OPPENHEIMER PARK DINNER | Saturday, January 27, 2018
For the last 28 years members of the Vancouver Film Industry have been hosting a Christmas Dinner in the park. 2016 was the first year the date was changed from a December dinner, due to an abundance of Christmas dinners served in December, to a January dinner, when there are no dinners served, and it was a huge success.
In keeping with this new tradition, volunteers will be serving up Bar-B-Q’d burgers and hotdogs with all the fixings, along with salads, desserts and hot beverages. All this in a carnival themed afternoon of food, balloons and entertainment for family celebration. Also, toiletries, socks, mittens and treats will be distributed to the residents of the DTES. This is the Film Community’s way to thank the residents for letting us into their neighbourhood for our work.
To keep this a Film Industry initiative alive many more Union volunteers are needed. Last year almost 3,500 lunches were served!
If you would like to help out on the day of the event please email Jill Bailey: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your Union and Department in your email.
