On Sunday July 5, 2009 the 2nd annual Minaki Foundation “cocktail party” was held at the Minaki Community Hall.  Thank you to everyone who attended and also to those of you who supported the event by purchasing tickets or who made a donation but were unable to attend. 

The event held in 2008 was a great success with roughly 270 tickets being sold but only about 170 people were able to attend.  Well, word got out because in 2009 290 tickets were sold and about 270 people attended.  In fact, we even had some people arrange their visits to Minaki this year based on attending the party.  THANKYOU!

 Total proceeds from the event based on ticket sales of $7250 and donations of $1905 were $9155.  Associated expenses were $1980.  An additional $3215 was taken in through the sale of refreshments and this revenue goes directly to the Minaki Community Association which looks after any related expenses.

    Thanks to all the volunteers – bartenders, servers, ticket sellers, etc.  We sincerely appreciate the fact that so many of you offer to help out.  A special thanks to Ken Johnson, for contributing the musical entertainment and to Alpine Printing who printed and donated the tickets.

 And how lucky are we to have Denise and Jean Louis in our community.  Not only was the food outstanding but please be aware that much of their work is done as a contribution to the event.  If any of you are in need of catering services please contact Denise and Jean Louis in Minaki at 224-4562, in Winnipeg at 889-9135 or visit their website at (see link on website).

 The Minaki Foundation provides charitable donation tax receipts.  The donation portion of your ticket to this event is $20.  We have distributed about 150 receipts but are still in possession of a few (addresses unknown) so if you have not received a receipt for your ticket purchase or separate donation by September 30 please contact Peter Barber at 224-6411 or by e-mail at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

 Once again, thank you for your support.  We hope you had a great summer.
