From a release
The Lambton-Kent Agriculture in the Classroom committee will host its 17th Annual Gala Fundraising Dinner, “A Taste of Lambton-Kent”, on March 28, 2014 in Willson Hall at the Ridgetown Campus of the University of Guelph. The evening opens with a social beginning 6:00 p.m., followed by dinner at 7:00 p.m. This exciting event showcases the finest agricultural products of the region through an elegantly presented six-course meal.
The funds raised at this event, the primary fundraiser for Lambton-Kent Agriculture in the Classroom (LKAITC) committee, help to foster programs designed to increase awareness and appreciation of agriculture to youth within the local educational system. Current committee projects include Harvest Days tour program for grade 3 students, Spring Days tour program for grade 4 students, and a new program that we are about to pilot this spring using Skype as the platform back to a classroom. LKAITC also refurbishes classroom activity kits with the assistance of the Lambton-Kent Science Education Partnership and supports Food Works that is a program carried out by One Tomato.
There are 210 tickets available for this dinner at a cost of $65.00 per person. A $20.00 tax receipt will be provided. Sponsorship opportunities also exist for businesses wanting to support this worthwhile endeavour. For tickets or to inquire about sponsorships, please contact the Ag Business Centre by phoning 1-866-222-9682.
