10th Annual Hope In The Dark

10th Annual Hope in the Dark 10th Annual Hope in the Dark The 10th Annual Centre of Hope, Hope in the Dark was a truly remarkable event!  The evening started with a delicious BBQ by Rotary Links and Tany Yao, MLA brought greetings and addressed the crowd with inspiring words.  The crowd came to their feet to do Zumba with Laura, and many had some great moves.   Guests were thrilled by the oversized screen to watch the Disney movie UP, which was like being at home in your own back yard, brought to us by FreshAir Cinemas. To round out the evening, Dwayne Flett & the Rob Banks band entertained us with their music.   As a group we remembered those taken too soon, honoring them by lighting luminaries.  Since 2005 to present we have lost 136 beautiful people due to many health issues and effects of being homeless. The Memorial is a hope to create change and honor the lives lost in our community.  Centre of Hope is striving to bring awareness about homelessness and bring about the change that is so desperately needed to help those affected.    Several individuals gave up their beds and the comfort of their homes to sleep in the park and experience what it is like to be homeless.    After a night in the park the Armoury Grill at the Legion treated us to a delicious hot breakfast, a luxury that our homeless do not get to enjoy. Centre of Hope’s 10th Annual Hope in the Dark was a wonderful event and experience for all who participated and was successful because of our sponsors, guests, and our own staff.  You helped us raise $8,681.00(net) which will help us help those who need it.  Centre of Hope is grateful for your support, as it’s a community effort to support each other to create the change needed.   We can’t begin to adequately thank the sponsors, service providers, and volunteers who helped bring this event together. Collectively, we are stronger, more innovative, more responsive, and more able to support Centre of Hope to do the tough and compassionate work they do every day.                                       GDC_logo.jpg
