Communities Supporting Communities

Some of you are aware that Vita Community Living Services is taking part in the Communities Supporting Communities fundraiser for Choices of Fort McMurray. Choices supports people with intellectual disabilities and, because of the horrific fire a few weeks ago, services have been disrupted, people with disabilities dislodged from their homes and scattered around the province. It's an awful situation and we, who have disabilities, along with we who support people with disabilities, are gathering to raise money to help out. I am giving a benefit lecture, right dab in the middle of summer, on July 28th at Christian Horizon's Toronto head office on 155 Dearhide Cres. The topic will be 'Making Community: The First Hello' and the cost is $60.00. There will be coffee, tea and muffins on sale in the morning and you will be able to purchase a (we're hoping) BBQ lunch (veggie options available). All profits from coffee, tea and food sales will go to the fundraiser. Every cent from ticket sales will go to the fundraiser. There are only 60 seats and they are selling for $60.00 a ticket. You can register by contacting rcastronovo@vitacls.org . She doesn't know that I'm doing this this weekend, so why not surprise her with your registration. It's a great cause and it will be a great day. Christian Horizons offered right away to partner with Vita on this day ... what happens when people come together is extraordinary.
