Tapas for TAPS 2015

Another wildly successful TAPAS for TAPS fundraiser blew out Heron Rock Bistro on June 3rd. This marks the fifth year that Heron Rock Bistro in James Bay has so generously provided the venue for this event and, of course, the delicious tapas—enjoyed by all. Many thanks to Andrew Moffat and the team at Heron Rock for their wonderful hospitality and their continuing support of TAPS’ advocacy and anti-poverty work.

This year we were delighted to have as guest speakers Andrew McLeod of the online newspaper The Tyee, who spoke about inequality in British Columbia, and Alison Latimer, a litigator at Farris, who spoke about the role of non-profit organizations in public interest cases. A big thank you to Alison and to Andrew for sharing their knowledge and insights.

And it wouldn’t be TAPAS for TAPS without the much-anticipated silent auction—a great success again this year! We want to send out a huge thank you to the local businesses and artists who donated items and services to the auction. And thank you to all who supported TAPS by coming and making TAPAS for TAPS such a success.
