Tapas for TAPS, an evening in support of legal advocacy

On Thursday, June 9 Together Against Poverty Society and local humour-colonist Jack Knox, are hosting our yummy fundraiser, Tapas for TAPS at the lovely Heron Rock Bistro in James Bay – and we’d love it if you joined us!

This event features delicious appetizers, a local craft beer tasting, live entertainment, great c­­ompany, and incredible live and silent auctions.

Please join us as we celebrate the important work of TAPS over the past year and build for the future. We are excited to welcome Irene Lanzinger, the first female President of the BC Federation of Labour. Irene will share her thoughts on the importance of public interest advocacy services for low-wage, non-unionized workers and the ways in which labour and poverty intersect.

TAPS is a small but mighty non-profit that has been boldly standing up for the rights of our region’s most vulnerable citizens for more than two decades.  TAPS continues to provide exceptional individual legal advocacy services to our community while shining a light on the broader systemic issues that perpetuate and further entrench poverty. TAPS is on the forefront of anti-poverty initiatives. While this is incredibly exciting, the high demand for TAPS’ advocacy has stretched this organization financially, making this fundraiser more important than ever.

Your ticket purchase will be directly helping individuals and families living in poverty who access our vital services. 

Tickets for the evening will be $75.00 per person; this includes a $50.00 charitable tax receipt.

Please RSVP as soon as possible, as space is limited.  You can purchase tickets

on-line at www.picatic.com/tapas4taps , at our office, or by email at ed@tapsbc.ca.  We also welcome donations and purchase of ‘sponsor’ tickets for our volunteers if you are unable to be with us for this event. All proceeds from the evening will directly support TAPS in delivering comprehensive legal advocacy with the guiding purpose of eradicating poverty in our community.

Thank you from all of us at TAPS. We hope to see you there!
