On November 3, 2023 BridgeWay Family Centre hosted a gala fundraiser to support families in Peel. With help from our sponsors, donors and gala attendees, we raised $38,000! These funds will go towards our Healthy Start and Postpartum Mood Disorder programs to support even more moms-to-be and moms with new babies.

Together, we raised $38,000!

Thank you to our sponsors, donors and gala attendees for helping us Turn the Page in the lives of families.

We continue to accept donations all year round. Click the DONATE button below to donate today.

Why Your Support Matters

BridgeWay is funded by all three levels of government, but the challenges families face outpaces funding. The gala focused on raising funds to support our Postpartum Mood Disorder programs and our Healthy Start programs.

The $38,000 raised will help us provide meals, vitamins, support from a Social Worker and education from a Dietitian to improve the outcomes for our tiniest clients and their families.

BridgeWay Gala Recap

Fun and Games

To help raise funds, we played Heads and Tails, sold raffle tickets, and had a Silent Auction!

Our Candy Table, sponsored by BridgeWay staff, was a huge hit!

The photobooth was essential to capturing the moments from the night.

Special Guests

Kelsey Orth, BridgeWay’s former Board Chair and Board Member from 2013 to 2022, joined us as our MC.

We enjoyed the musical talents of the Mississauga Fine Arts Academy Chamber Strings.

Vanessa Padovani and Carson Shaw (BridgeWay
