Heritage Hall (3102 Main Street)  
Doors Open at 6pm * Dinner at 7:00pm * Live music starts at 8:30pm

Do privatization and corporate bail-outs make your hair stand on end?  Do you think Stephen Harper is spooky?   Join us on the evening of Sunday, October 30th  and enjoy an excellent dinner, followed by live (and lively!) local music.  Costumes are encouraged!   

This is also a chance to support the Organizing Centre for Social and Economic Justice as we come up to our fifth anniversary at our Broadway and Main location. We can hardly believe it's been that long, but we did the math and it's true!  That's five years of building local grassroots working class movement and international solidarity.  Please come celebrate with us and help make our next five years possible!

This is an accessible space (front door is street level with no stairs and is large enough to allow a wheelchair, and the bathroom is wheelchair accessible). 

The Organizing Centre is home to the Alliance for People's Health, the Food Action Collective, Workers Across Borders, and People's Health Radio.   You can find out more at

* $25  Single Ticket (kids under twelve eat free) 
* $40 Sponsor (one ticket and your name in program) 
 Solidarity sponsorship is available at $320 and includes reserved table (8 seats), name on table and name in program.

Please contact Jen at or call 604-566-4745  to purchase tickets.   Tickets must be purchased in advance; we will not be selling tickets at the door.

We love volunteers!  We are in fact a volunteer-run centre.  If you are  interested in helping out at the fundraiser we would love to hear from you.  Please email Jen at

I am a food justice community organizer in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside. I have been making community radio since 2009 with Redeye on Vancouver Co-op Radio. When I'm not doing either of the above, I'm doing housework.
