Upcoming Event: Haiti Earthquake Relief Train - February 6th
Destiny Tours of Guelph, Ontario have, since September of 2008, been operating the "Guelph Junction Express" dinner trains from Guelph to Campbellville, Ontario on the Guelph Junction Railway which is owned by the City of Guelph. Our earlier report on this railway and the dinner train operation can be found here.
In response to the catastrophe that has befallen Haiti, Destiny Tours has scheduled a special dinner-train excursion to raise money for Haiti Earthquake Relief. This 2.5 hours excursion will include the train ride, dinner onboard and live entertainment provided by local pianist, John Zadro. Due to the generosity of their suppliers, they will be able to donate 100% of the ticket price to this crucial relief effort. This means if they sell all 140 seats on the train they can raise up to $14,000 for Haiti Relief. All funds raised will be forwarded to Doctors Without Borders who are currently on the ground in Haiti. Each purchaser of a ticket will receive a tax receipt for 50% of the price of this excursion from Doctors Without Borders Canada.Tickets are $100 per person.
The Train will be departing at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, February 6th, 2010. For more information, click here.
