Experience Hastings Crossing ends this Sunday – so before we wrap up, we want to invite you to enjoy Feature Friday. HxBIA businesses and organizations have planned some new special features, events and promotions for today and the rest of the weekend.
Start your morning on a lovely and caffeinated note at Lost + Found Cafe. They will be donating a dollar for every coffee sold to Vancouver Women’s Health Collective. VWHC is a non-profit that gives women the support and knowledge they need to take charge of their own health.
Plan for a great meal tonight at Pidgin Restaurant. They are donating 10% of the profits from all food sold this evening to support ALIVE Society’s RISE program. RISE empowers indigenous inner-city youth, and works to improve their graduation rates. Check out Pidgin’s menu and book a reservation here.
If you’ve been thinking about learning more about eco-conscious fashion or adding a new beautiful piece to your closet, make sure to visit Hey Jude for their Denim Weekend. For every pair of denim sold this weekend, they will donate a portion of the proceeds and an article of clothing to the Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre – a wonderful non-profit that has been providing a safe space for women and children in the DTES since 1978
Last but certainly not least: HxBIA is hosting a free crawl between several unique HxBIA business this evening. Join us and our incredible host Wes Regan in learning more about the community. Afterwards, if you’re still looking for more fun, HiVE is hosting a night of drinks and dancing to celebrate Caribbean culture: Island Vibes, A Caribbean Fête.
We hope you enjoy the last few days of Experience Hastings Crossing!
