Generally speaking the needs on the street are increasing and for many charities across Canada, there are dwindling resources as people are faced with financial crises of various sorts. We are hosting a fund raising auction that I would like you to attend. The details are in the rotating banner above, but if you are interested, I would like to share with you some of the events of the evening:
Greg Paul, well-known speaker and author will be our guest speaker. Greg is from Sanctuary, Toronto, and in addition to his role as a pastor of a church in the downtown core, has authored two best sellers: God in the Alley and The Twenty Piece Shuffle. Another book will soon be released. Greg is a member of the National Roundtable on Poverty and Homelessness and a member of Street Level.
Dave Smith, a renowned philanthropist, businessman and entrepreneur in Ottawa has agreed to be our auctioneer. Dave has a heart for youth, and has founded the Dave Smith Youth Treatment Centre.
