Colours of Hope with Gerry Dee…A Night of Laughter and Great Food!

On Friday, March 23rd, 2018, the Hamilton chapter of the Charity of Hope hosted Colours of Hope, a fundraiser to raise money for local children and youth in our community. Canadian actor and stand-up comedian, Gerry Dee, headlined our event, as we indulged in a delicious meal, courtesy of Carmen’s Banquet Centre. Gerry’s performance was truly delightful and his sense of humour provided our guests with some much-needed comic relief. His stories about teaching were a hit with teachers, parents, and students alike. Gerry had headlined our event in 2016 and made such a positive impression on our guests that we invited him back for more laughter and excitement. 

At our event, we honoured a very special, strong and hopeful lady, Khadjia. She received a bursary to help her as she pursues further education.  Khadjia told us her heartwarming story and reminded us that even a “simple smile can give hope to someone else”.  

Not only did our audience listen to excellent speakers, all of our guests walked away with a manicure or pedicure on behalf of The Spa at Mercedes-Benz Burlington.  And one of our lucky guests, Randy Vansevenant, won the big raffle prize for the evening, a weekend away with a new Mercedes Benz. Thank you Mercedes-Benz Burlington https://www.mercedes-benz-burlington.ca.

But more importantly, that Friday restored our faith in humanity. We raised over $120,000, which will help us as we continue to grant wishes and provide hope to kids in need. We want to sincerely thank everyone who came out to support us on March 23 as well as Carmen’s staff, our volunteers, the Hamilton community, and our amazing corporate partners for your ongoing dedication to those in need.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hope Night in Canada with Chantal Kreviazuk…another great night!

On Friday March 31st, 2017, the Hamilton chapter of the Charity of Hope hosted Hope Night in Canada, a fundraiser to raise money for local children and youth in need. In keeping with this year’s Canada 150 theme, Canadian singer and songwriter Chantal Kreviazuk headlined our event, as we indulged in a delicious maple cheesecake dessert, courtesy of Carmen’s Banquet Centre. Chantal’s performance was truly spectacular and her witty zingers between songs provided us with some much-needed comic relief.  
 
At our event, we granted wishes for three very special youth. In partnership with BMO, we provided laptops to two Steph and Myliek, to assist them as they continue to work with other youth in their neighbourhoods.  Anita, our Edge Spirit award winner, received a bursary to help her as she pursues further education. 
 
But more importantly, Friday restored our faith in humanity. We raised over $100,000, which will help us as we continue to grant wishes and provide hope to kids in need. A huge thanks to everyone that came out to support us, Carmen’s staff, our volunteers, the Hamilton community and our amazing corporate partners for your ongoing dedication.
