Get ready for an exciting and interactive experience on Tuesday, February 27, 2024 as Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) Niagara Branch hosts its 13th annual signature fundraising event, “Wellness for All” at the Ovation Room, (formerly Club Castropignano), 1311 Egerter Road, Thorold.
“The whole community is invited to participate in this interactive and informative evening,” said Tara McKendrick, CMHA Niagara’s Executive Director. “As our largest annual fundraiser, the event proceeds are used to help fill service gaps and provide timely access to urgent, preventative, and crisis mental health and addictions services to people in Niagara.”
Over the past 12 years more than $300,000 in much-needed funding has been raised to support CMHA Niagara. “This year we have adopted a new event name, Wellness For All, to signify the welcoming of everyone in the community, ” said McKendrick.
“Attendees can expect delicious food, sweet treats, prizes, raffles, silent auction and fundraising activities, and this year we have partnered with the Willow Arts Community who will oversee a community art project, provide original musical entertainment, and create a unique piece of art to be auctioned live.”
The evening also includes a mental wellness panel, moderated by community leader and radio show host Ruth Unrau. Individuals will share insights and information from the perspective of people with lived experience and panelists include: Life Unscripted radio host, Janice Arnoldi; CMHA Niagara’s Client and Family Advisory Committee member Karen Marie Dickson, and Willow Arts Community member Jo Barham.
Others participating in the evening’s activities include Willow Arts Community founder and director Shauna MacLeod, story teller and poet Danny Hummel, artist and performing artist Colleen McTigue, and artist Katherine Sunita.
“Willow Arts Community is thrilled to be a part of this dynamic event with CMHA Niagara,” said Shauna MacLeod. “It’s an opportunity to connect with our community, share some of our personal stories, and demonstrate the talent and passion of our members.”
Tickets are $30 each and include an antipasto bar with a variety of choices, a chocolate fountain, coffee and tea.
