In light of the recent horrific events in Christchurch, New Zealand, Across The Board Game Café with the support of Shawarma Khan and our other partners invite members from Winnipeg’s Muslim Community and Winnipeg’s wider community to come together to Play for Peace on Monday, April 1st from 5:00 to 10:00 pm.
The spirit of the evening will be to interact, socialize, have fun and learn from each other while sharing some laughs and building friendships. We will also be raising money for the Manitoba Interfaith Immigration Council, which works to help recent immigrants integrate into life in Manitoba.
Across the Board and Shawarma Khan will be providing meals to everyone who attends and makes a suggested minimum donation of $10 to the Manitoba Interfaith Immigration Council – Welcome Place (tax receipts will be issued for the amount of $10+), and there will be a selection of board games generously provided by our corporate partners that will be gifted to some participants. We are also working to have a live video link-up during the event with ‘Counterculture, ’ a Board Game Café located New Zealand, to help show our support to their community.
In the event that there is insufficient seating for all participants, the Winnipeg Folk Festival has kindly offered their space across the lobby from Across the Board as an overflow seating area.
Across the Board would like acknowledge the participation of the following organizations who have donated time, services, product and/or their social support of this event: Amigo Games, Asmodee Canada, Gordon Food Services, the Islamic Social Services Association, the Manitoba Islamic Association, Shawarma Khan, Shine Branding, Ravensburger, R&R Games Incorporated, and the Winnipeg Folk Festival.
Across the Board Game Café is located at 211 Bannatyne Avenue, in the McKim Building, at the corner of Main and Bannatyne.
If you are unable to attend the event but would like to make a donation anyway, please follow this link from the MIIA. Thank you for your support!
