Tackling MS

Two high school football teams will get the thrill of playing in Investors Group Field for the first time -- and the fight against multiple sclerosis is the beneficiary.

Daffodils come early

Daffodils will be popping up a couple of seasons early for a good cause on Sept. 27. It's the Canadian Cancer Society's annual Daffodil Gala on Sept. 27, and it is celebrating the society's 75-year-long fight against cancer. The gala is at the Winnipeg Convention Centre and features a champagne reception, gourmet dinner, martini bar, fundraising auctions and dancing with Ron Paley and his Orchestra. Individual tickets cost $185 with tax receipts issued for the charitable portion, or $225 for a patron or $2,500 for a corporate table of 10. For more information or to order tickets, call 204-774-7483 or go to www.gala.ccsmanitobaevents.com.

Charity art sale

The gavel will begin dropping on the Jubilee Fund charity art and collectibles auction Sept. 23.

A list of donated art for the auction is expected to be at www.jubileefund.ca.

Bannock and a movie

Several short films and music videos will be shown on the exterior of Neechi Commons on Sept. 28. The aboriginal co-op will host Bannock and the Big Screen along with the Winnipeg Film Group at 865 Main St., starting at 8 p.m. The films, created by First Nations and M©tis filmmakers for Nuit Blanche Winnipeg include Two Scoops by Jackie Traverse, Wab Kinew's Good Boy, and I'm M©tis by Christian Goulet. Bannock and refreshments will be available.

Book of Life

The Jewish Foundation of Manitoba will be honouring several charitable members of the community on Sept. 17. The annual Endowment Book of Life donor-recognition evening will see several community members sign promises to include the foundation in their wills. The event, being held at Congregation Etz Chayim at 123 Matheson Ave., also features humour, nostalgia and music from Allan Blye, Norman Mittelmann, and Aubrey Tadman.
