    Annual Event Helps Support Abrigo

    The Abrigo Centre was honored to participate once again at the annual Lusogolf Fundraising Golf Tournament held on Saturday, May 26, 2018 at the lovely Caledon Golf Club.

    Each year this tournament raises funds for a number of important initiatives, first and foremost providing student bursaries to worthy candidates as well as assisting other local charitable organizations like the Abrigo Centre.

    The great weather and lush layout of the course made for an excellent day of golf. With a sold out field of more than 150 golfers all vying for the lowest score, the most important number was the money raised from the event.

    Abrigo would like to thank Lusogolf Fundraising Inc. Committee Chair Enir Bassani, (pictured centre) Treasurer Joe Silva and all the other Committee members for their generous support of our agency. The annual commitment they demonstrate truly makes a difference for Abrigo clients. Thank you!

    Mastercard Canada volunteers help out during seniors Mother's Day High Tea event

    The Abrigo Centre was honoured to host three volunteers from Mastercard Canada who took part in the this year's United Way Day of Caring event which was held on Thursday, May 10th. This was the second year for Abrigo to participate in this special day. It gives staff members from local and national corporations the opportunity to volunteer with a social service agency aligned with the United Way.

    Thank you to our new friends Laura, Stephanie and Danai from Mastercard Canada for spending the day with the seniors in our Life and Hope group. The group was holding it's annual Mother's Day High Tea that day so our special volunteers spent a significant amount of time helping to prepare a special meal for 100 program participants.

    We hope all our clients had a wonderful time at this great event and we also extend our thanks to the volunteers from Mastercard Canada for giving back to the community. It was great to have you join us. Thank you!
