Save the date! Our joint Annual Event fundraiser with Veloo Foundation will take place September 22, 2018. This event is a Mongolian cultural event, supporting our global future, at home and across the world, one child at a time.
The Evening Under Mongolian Stars is a joint fundraiser between Cedar Bridge School and the Veloo Foundation. The event offers attendees a chance to experience real Mongolian culture while helping to make a difference in children’s lives both locally and globally. The event will be fun, upbeat, and colourful and will feature Mongolian entertainment, food, dress, and other cultural pieces.
Recently named “Independent School of the Year” Cedar Bridge School is a thriving and growing organization providing Waldorf Education from preschool through grade 7. Set on 18 forested acres, the school seeks to help children reach their full potential by nurturing them in a wholesome, developmentally appropriate way. The aim of Cedar Bridge School is to ignite a love of learning in each child, while focusing on developing creative, confident children who will enter their lives with courage and purpose and will be conscientious global citizens.
The Veloo Foundation operates The Children of the Peak Sanctuary, a kindergarten for some of the most seriously disadvantaged children in Mongolia’s capital city, Ulan Bator. It was founded by Julie Veloo of Vernon BC and it provides food, care and education to 150 young children five days a week whose families survive by scavenging in the dump for food, fuel and clothing. If not at the kindergarten these very young children would be at home alone with little or no food or heat or scavenging at the garbage dump with their parents for 12 hours a day year-round. In winter, temperatures in Mongolia range from -20 to -45 degrees Celsius.
The Evening Under Mongolian Stars joint fundraiser is an opportunity to experience the magic of real Mongolian culture while supporting children in reaching their full potential at both Cedar Bridge School and at The Children of the Peak Sanctuary.
This event will be held at Vernon’s Paddlewheel Park Hall on Saturday, September 22, 2018.
