Sõrve Fundraiser – Christmas in July, Sydney July 29

Sõrve Fundraiser – Christmas in July will be held at Sydney Estonian House on Saturday July 29 starting 6.30 pm

As you know, Sõrve was established by parents from the Estonian community in Australia more than 50 years ago as a unique opportunity for children with an Estonian background, and their friends, to experience the culture and traditions of their ancestors, as well as gain invaluable skills in sporting, cultural and leadership roles that will equip them for life.

While the cost to attend Sõrve is set by Sport and Recreation, the parents committee endeavours to keep the final per person cost to a minimum. However, for some families these fees are prohibitive. As the intention of Sõrve Sõbrad is to make the camp as inclusive as possible, the parents committee actively undertakes fundraising to assist families in attending camp.

Your support of Sõrve is invaluable in ensuring that we continue this unique experience for our families and children.

It was decided on a cold blistering afternoon, that we would take on the challenge of planning a fabulous share dinner for the Sõrve fundraiser – Christmas in July! Discussion on what to create for a mid-winter feast was very involved with Masterchef on TV in the background and numerous cookbooks scattered all over the place. As part of the kitchen cook team, Liz, Mai and Imbi have prepared many Estonian and European dishes before, specialising in pirukad, rye bread and desserts. Also joining us on this occasion will be Melissa Müller. Together, we will prepare a share plate Christmas dinner for everyone to enjoy with their family and friends and be part of the Sõrve family.

To raise funds we have the Sõrve Silent Auction, to entertain you we have Sydney Virmalised folk dancing group and Lõke singing group performing from their repertoire during the evening.

This fundraiser will be held on Saturday July 29 at Sydney Estonian House starting from 6.30pm. All are very welcome!
