The Greater Peterborough Health Services Foundation, the foundation that supports your local family health team, is a little “short” on funds.

You can help them raise money by joining hosts Erica Cherney and Dr. Tom Phillips at a unique event that celebrates all the good things that come in small packages — including small business, short fiction, compact cars and, yes, a darn good haiku!

"It’s a Small World" will be held at Le Petit Bar in downtown Peterborough on Sunday, September 15th.

Tom and I decided it was time to put our height to good use and have a charity event to celebrate people who are smaller....less than 5 feet, 2 inches,” says Erica Cherney, who is co-hosting the event with Dr. Tom Phillips. “Being not so-tall needs to be celebrated. We hope people of all heights will join us, even tall people. It’s a great chance for them to see how the other half lives!”

"It’s a Small World" takes place from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. on September 15th. The first 30 ticket holders will have their choice of which sitting they wish to attend. Guests can enjoy a short stay that includes a wee bit of wine, finger foods, merry-making and other entertainment.

Proceeds from the event will help to fund hearing-amplified headphones for use by family health team doctors in long-term care homes in the City and County of Peterborough.

Tickets are available for $50 online at smallworld2013.eventbrite.ca or at Cherney Realty, 171 King St., Peterborough.

For more information on the event, call Erica Cherney at 705-876-1717, Dr. Tom Phillips at 705-748-1011 Ext 7009, or the Foundation office at 705-740-8074.
