June 23, Gung Haggis Fat JOY KOGAWA HOUSE fundraiser dinner

Historic Joy Kogawa House has now been purchased by

The Land Conservancy of BC. But the journey to create a national
historic landmark and writing centre for all Canadians is just
beginning.  We now need to raise funds for restoration of the house to
when Joy and her family left it in 1942 when they were interned during
WW2, and to create an endowment for its operation.


Please join us for a special fundraiser dinner
 for historic
Joy Kogawa House.
