Celebrate Child Haven on May 4!
6:30 Saturday, May 4, join Kingston’s 17th annual Child Haven International benefit for 10 children’s homes and 2 women’s education programs founded by Maxville, Ontario’s Bonnie and Fred Cappuccino, and their son Robin in India, Bangladesh, Nepal and Tibet in China. Come enjoy a sit down buffet supper of authentic Indian vegetarian and meat dishes, and then sweet desserts at the Royal Kingston Curling Club, 130 Days Rd.. Entertainment includes the India Canada Association dancers and the Kitchen Gypsies, plus Bollywood dance lessons, and a fair trade Indian crafts silent auction and bazaar. The evening ends with a fun, competitive live auction of some of the larger wool carpets and furniture.
The Cappuccinos practise altruism, balanced with pragmatism and good humour. The Child Haven homes run on the principles of Mahatma Gandhi, with NO proselytizing and NO discrimination by gender, caste, race, religion or culture. The Cappuccinos are very committed to local solutions and management, education and sustainability.
Kingston’s event organizers, Andy Rush and his wife Jackie RushMorgan have been interns for Child Haven’s homes in 2017 and 2018.
