We would like to thank all of our clients, caregivers, community members & leaders, Board members and partners who attended Lumacare’s AGM 2016 & Special Networking Event.
With nearly 100 attendees, the evening was filled with networking, information sharing and reflecting on the year that was, all accompanied by hors d’oeuvres and refreshments. Lumacare also presented their 2016 Inger Holm Leadership Award to Mario Sergio, MPP York West for his efforts in working for a better quality of life for seniors in Ontario. The highlight of the evening was the inspiring speech by guest speaker and Paralympian, Josh Cassidy. Josh spoke about the importance of staying positive and being a light in the lives of others, despite any obstacles one may face.
We would also like to thank all those who made a donation at the event as half of the money raised will help support Josh Cassidy’s journey to the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio. The remaining funds will go towards helping Lumacare continue to provide high quality services to seniors, caregivers and family members in our communities.
The evening also featured the launch of Lumacare’s brand new online fundraising initiative/partnership with Change Heroes. Although our fundraising page had only been live for a few hours before the event, we had already raised $251 by the end of the night! Make sure to check out our page, donate, and share with your friends! https://lumacare.changeheroes.com/c/jeff-gruchys-for-seniors/#/
Thank you again too everyone who was able to attend. We hope you had a great evening and look forward to seeing you at our future events!
