Gateway Publishing is always very pleased to publish community fundraising cookbooks and this past summer we were able to help out several community clubs with their fundraising. One of the most intriguing was for a garlic festival taking place in Lac La Hache, British Columbia.
Lac La Hache is a very small community located in the Central Interior of B.C. It is home to one of the oldest organizations, The Lac La Hache Community Club, which has a long and impressive record of achievements and dedication to the community. The Community Club is comprised of hard working volunteers who work together to support various social and sporting events, making Lac La Hache a great family oriented community.
One of the most recent events was the South Cariboo Garlic Fest held August 27 and 28th. All the highlights about the garlic fest can be viewed on their main web page – www.garlicfestival.ca.
The Garlic Fest has grown substantially from last year, more vendors and more traffic in the grounds. Making its debut at the recent garlic fest was a cookbook called Strictly Garlic featuring 175 garlic-loaded recipes. The recipes include appetizers, meats, salads, dressings, soups, vegetables and pickles/relishes. The cost of the book is $10 and shipping costs in Canada for 1 book is $2.31, 2 books $3.20.
To place an order for a book please email Barb Hansen at firstname.lastname@example.org providing name and address. Any cheques or money orders must be made payable to Lac La Hache Community Club, once funds are received (including shipping costs) the books will be automatically shipped out.
Thank you for taking the time to read about their little community, they are actively fundraising for other new projects they have in the works. Any funds they generate always revert back into the community; profits from last year’s garlic fest were used to drill a well at the festival grounds.
