This year is the first time the Lady Aberdeen Afternoon Tea Dance has been cancelled since its inception in 1939 under the auspices of the Lady Aberdeen club. The dance has been held on Remembrance Day and in that spirit proceeds from the dance have been donated to various charities. Since WW2, proceeds from the dance have been donated to: the war effort (during the war years); veterans organizations and other charities, and for the past few years Honour House amongst others. While we are unable to meet in person to dance this year, we are asking our dancing community to consider continuing the tradition of donating. You may do so via the link below. We ask that donations be made by November 12th.

While there are a number of important and worthy causes, the Board has decided for this year to donate to Honour House, an organization that supports Canadian Armed Forces, Veterans and First Responders when injured or ill. In addition to doctors and nurses, our First Responders have been impacted by additional risks during COVID 19.

Any donation is, of course, voluntary and the amount is totally the decision of the donor. However, you might want to consider what you would have spent attending the dance and buying raffle tickets. If you would like a tax receipt (for donations over $10) ensure you complete that portion of the online process via the link below, and the Branch will forward the receipt to you.

 
Receipt requested for donations in excess of $10.00
