2nd Annual Hoe Down for Ward 9 on Wednesday July 4

June 28th, 2012

Councillor Gian-Carlo Carra sends the following invitation to next week’s Hoe Down for Ward 9:

Dear Neighbour,

In my efforts to be a different kind of politician, I’m trying to approach fundraising in a different way.

I’m leery of the ubiquity of $150 events that are attended solely by the development industry. The Ward 9 Hoe Down is my attempt to create an event that everyone can afford to come to, and that is such value for money (and so fun) that everyone wants to come.

I’d be honored if you came to the 2nd Annual Ward 9 Hoe Down with your family, neighbours, friends, and colleagues to celebrate the amazing community we’re so lucky to share.

A great meal, a great concert by T. Buckley, and a ton of fun all for $35 (it’s an Inglewood Party so bring your kids for free).

Order online at or email Lauren at

Thanks for your support and see you next Wednesday!
