BridgeWay Family Centre Gala

On November 23rd BridgeWay Family Centre held its 2nd ever Gala event, “Making A Difference”.  In one evening we raised $26,500.  That topped our first Gala 3 years ago, by $10,000! 

It was a wonderful evening thanks to so many people who made it happen.  We want to thank our sponsors and our guests who opened their wallets and generously gave to support our work.  Our guest speaker Samra Zafar was so powerful in her keynote address, thank you for sharing your story.  We would also like to thank the team of dedicated volunteers who gave so generously of their time and experience in organizing and facilitating the gala. 

Thanks to this generous community support, we will be able to support families through the challenges and joys of parenting young children, we will be able to teach low-income families how to cook healthy meals on a budget, we will be able to bring programs into neighbourhoods where there aren’t any, we will be able to provide prenatal vitamins for pregnant teens or low-income pregnant women improving the health of their babies, and so much more.    We are overwhelmed by the support we received and by the impact that this will have for families in Peel.

Watch for our next Gala event in 2019 where we will celebrate 35 years of serving families in Peel.
