2015 Benefit Event is November 4 – Save the Date!

The highlight of our annual fundraising campaign is our Benefit Cocktail Party and Silent Auction. Our 2015 event is set for Wednesday, November 4 when our heritage building will be beautifully transformed into a party venue.

This year’s Guest of Honour is Lionel J. Blanshay, a stellar member of our Board of Directors for twelve years until his retirement earlier this year. As in past years, eminent journalist Dennis Trudeau is our emcee and the Dave Turner Jazz Trio are playing.

The 2015 benefit event will build on the momentum of highly successful fundraising events held in each of the past nine years. Last year’s event, with guest of honour Bob Gainey, drew a capacity crowd, generated excitement about our organization – and contributed over $90,000 net for community educational and cultural programs and services. These proceeds form an essential portion of our lean operating budget.
