Pakistan fundraiser

20 Aug

This just in – a letter from Michael Stadtländer. As always, Michael’s vision is slightly wider and deeper than most.

 “My Dear Friends of Eigensinn Farm and Haisai,

It has been a very hot and sticky summer and I want to let you know that the harvest is growing very well. What I really want to say is that we are really doing well. The news about the disaster in Pakistan is making me realize how good we have it here. Even though as Canadians we think we have problems, they are nothing compared to the devastation that the Pakistani people are living through now. So what we are doing, very spontaneously, is organizing a dinner where Adam Colquhoun of Oyster Boy (Restaurant) is donating his restaurant and my friend colleagues are donating their creations and time to cook a multi-course tasting menu for you to enjoy. The fundraiser will be held on Monday, August 23rd. Dinner starts at 7:30 at a cost of $150.00 plus taxes and wine. 100% of the money from the dinner will be going towards the relief efforts in Pakistan. There are forty seats available. Please call Oyster Boy at 416 534 3432 for reservations.

 P.S. I am organizing a Harvest Fest which will be held on Sunday, September 26th at Eigensinn Farm. The event will be revisiting the sculptures of the Heaven on Earth Project. More details to come in the upcoming weeks.

 Thank you for your help

Michael Stadtlander”

    Shayma, Michael writes that 100% of the funds raised will be donated to Doctors Without Borders. More power to them.
