We gather most of our contributions through fundraising events. On this section you will find more information about traditional events organized by the Vila Isabel Society.
ANNUAL GARAGE SALE
The event has been taking place every year since 2006. It is a great way to raise funds with minimal costs. Every year we count on a number of volunteers and donors to make this event a success!
At first, the event was limited to one day, but since 2015, it has been expanding. However in 2015, our Garage Sale took place over a weekend, while in 2016, it was a 3 day event in two locations, Vancouver, and Richmond.

Feijoada is a typical Brazilian dish that is famous worldwide. It consists of a stew of beans with beef and pork and assorted sausages; it is usually served with steamed white rice and very thinly sliced collard greens, small pieces of fresh orange and farofa, which is made with cassava flour.
Through this event, Vila Isabel is able to gather a large group of people interested in Brazil and in helping our organization. The funds raised consist of ticket sales and a silent auction. The Silent Auction relies on the support and donations of various local companies.
