Inaugural ZOE Greek Night in Swift Current, Nov. 12, 2016

Written by 

Patrons at the inaugural ZOE Greek Night in Swift Current on Nov. 12 enjoyed an evening of fine food and entertainment while helping to make a young boy’s wish come true. The sold out event at the Days Inn raised money for the Saskatchewan Chapter of the Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada. The funds will be used to grant a wish to a 10-year-old boy from the Swift Current area who suffers from cystic fibrosis. He expressed a wish to go on an African safari with his family. The event was hosted by Swift Current’s Greek Orthodox community as a way to continue their charitable efforts in a different format after raising more than $850,000 over 17 years through the annual Night Out in Greece. Most of the funds from Night Out in Greece were donated to the Dr. Noble Irwin Regional Healthcare Foundation. ZOE Greek Night is a new fundraising initiative that will focus on providing support for other charitable organizations.
