Winnipeg, we need your support to express who we truly are.
In light of the recent horrific events in Christchurch, New Zealand, Across The Board Game Café with the support of Shawarma Khan and our other partners invite members from Winnipeg’s Muslim Community and Winnipeg’s wider community to come together to Play for Peace on Monday, April 1st from 5:00 to 10:00 pm.
The spirit of the evening will be to interact, socialize, have fun and learn from each other while sharing some laughs and building friendships. We will also be raising money for the Manitoba Interfaith Immigration Council, which works to help recent immigrants integrate into life in Manitoba.
Across the Board and Shawarma Khan will be providing meals to everyone who attends and makes a suggested minimum donation of $10 to the Manitoba Interfaith Immigration Council-Welcome Place (tax receipts will be issued for donation of $10+), and there will be a selection of board games generously provided by our corporate partners that will be gifted to some participants. We are also working to have a live video link-up during the event with ‘Counterculture, ’ a Board Game Café located New Zealand, to help show our support to their community.
In the event that there is insufficient seating for all participants, the Winnipeg Folk Festival has kindly offered their space across the lobby from Across the Board as an overflow seating area.
