  • Volunteer Appreciation Event Celebrates Those Who Make a Difference

    29 April 2016 / Uncategorized / 0 Comment

    Abrigo's volunteers and students feted at annual event!

    Abrigo held its annual Volunteer Appreciation Event on Thursday, April 28 on our second floor and the meeting room was filled with adults and students who donate one of life's most precious resources, time.

    Last year, our 106 volunteers donated 16,726 hours of service to the agency. Abrigo is truly appreciative and lucky to have such a huge outpouring of assistance.

    Our guests were provided with a lovely buffet of food, poems and other remarks from clients and volunteers. This event really was a great opportunity to say “thank you” to our volunteers, students and Board members who give Abrigo so much.

    Our volunteer's efforts make a real and significant difference to the women, men and youth who turn to us for help. We could not assist 6,000 individuals each year without the support of our dedicated volunteers.

    Thank you once again to all our adult volunteers and students!

    Thank you to our dedicated volunteers.

    Abrigo's volunteers are the best!

    Over 300 guests raise $34,200 for Abrigo while enjoying a fantastic evening of food, fun and information.

    Abrigo was proud to present our Imagine the Possibilities Gala on Saturday, April 2, 2016. Each year, Abrigo's signature annual fundraising event grows both in attendance and prestige. This year, 300 guests (our largest attendance ever!) came out to support this vital community service. In total, $34,200 was raised to support the programs and services delivered to our clients. Thank you!

    The evening featured two videos: one that examined how Abrigo programing improves client lives and the other, about the "Give Abrigo A Lift" capital campaign and also acted as a video "thank you" to our event hosts LiUNA Local 183 and other organizations who have provided financial support so far to the campaign. The night was capped off by a performance from one of the GTA's best live party bands, The Sound Parade, who had the dance floor packed with happy revelers.

    All the funds raised at the Imagine the Possibilities Gala will go toward improving the programs and services provided to Abrigo clients.

    This event would not be possible without the generous support of our corporate sponsors. Abrigo would like to take this opportunity to thank all the sponsors of this year's gala.
