2017 Benefit Cocktail Party

Over 250 people attended our annual gala on November 1 and it was a tremendous success. Guest of Honour Michael St. B. Harrison paid tribute to our organization and spoke eloquently about the importance of volunteerism that’s such a big part of our success. Global Montreal anchor/reporter Amanda Jelowicki served as emcee and the Dave Turner Jazz Trio played. The event generated about $70,000 net to support our programs and services, which is a vital part of our lean budget. We are very grateful to everyone who contributed, especially our generous corporate sponsors and silent auction donors.
