BCC fund raiser in Calgary on Sunday May 24

Jan and Keith will be back in Calgary for Bolivia - Canada Clean Water Network's first official fund-raiser. The BCC Clean Water Fiesta will be held on Sunday, May 24th at La Pachanga Latino Restaurant (918-12th Avenue SW) in Calgary.

Tickets are $40 in advance and $45 at the door. Funds raised will support the work of local partner organizations in implementing affordable and lasting water and sanitation projects in rural communities of Bolivia. For more information on BCC's projects, please visit

Keith had the wonderful experience of visiting Trevor, Janaki and their crew - Roberto, Angel, Philippe and Bertalina - in Bolivia at the beginning of their project back in May 2007. Since that time, BCC has constructed and installed household water filters for more than 300 families.

If you wish to purchase your tickets online, please use the donate button on our How to Help Page to pay $41.50 and send us a quick note letting us know that you wish to purchase tickets to the event on the screen that appears after you have entered your payment information. BCC will send you the tickets electronically.

Please come out and support this wonderful project - and the recipient of the 2008 YMCA Calgary Peace medal award.

Hope to see you all in Calgary on May 24!
