Admission will be by donation at the door – donations over $ 20 are eligible for a tax receipt – and every penny raised will go to support Deltassist’s emergency food cupboard, a palliative available to help residents low-income Delta in crisis situations by providing emergency food, vouchers and bus tickets.
