Charity at Canadian BBQ

Canucks in Seoul is set to raise cash for moms and babies at a celebration of Queen Victoria’s birthday. The third annual Canadian Community BBQ is to raise funds to help unwed mothers and their children. The event organized by the Canadian Women’s Club, is to be held on Friday, May 27.

The Victoria Day Backyard BBQ is to offer food, music and Canadian trivia from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Canadian Embassy’s Schofield Hall. Last year’s event raised 8 million won ($739,000) for First Steps, a Canadian humanitarian organization which works to prevent childhood malnutrition in North Korea. This year’s fundraising will go to Ae Ran Won shelter for mothers-to-be and unwed mothers in Seoul. The center offers counseling, education and a safe environment to raise their babies.

Places at the BBQ are limited and cost 15,000 won including a burger or hotdog and salad. Contact cwckorea@live.com to book a spot or for more information.
