Another Record Broken: 28th Annual Business Dinner Success

frank-odeaWhat an evening!! Another record was hit on October 7th with over $60,000 raised that will go towards youth mentoring programs in Regina. Big heart felt thank you to Scotiabank for presenting this evening. At the end of this special night, there was no one who left that room anything short of inspired. We were super fortunate to have Frank O’Dea share his powerful journey and message of hope, vision and action with us. Thank you to Michelle Ferris for sharing your story with us, and our journey together. It’s this type of impact that fuels our movement from top to bottom and left to right. It’s this type of impact that inspires us to want to reach as far as we can, day in and day out. It truly does take a village. Thank you to our community for wanting what we want for tomorrow. Thank you to the staff, the volunteers, the mentors, the board of directors, the partners, the strangers who show up and just drop off sporting event tickets, the donor who wrote us a cheque for 10 dollars, and the other donor who wrote us a cheque for $10,000. It all matters a great deal, and it all makes what we are accomplishing as a village, really special. Lastly, thank you to all of the youth that we have the privilege of serving. It is you who inspire us all, and it is you who will change the world tomorrow.

for nickels and dimes. Today, he is a celebrated business person.

Best known as a founder of The Second Cup, he also was involved in founding a number of other successful international businesses and not-for-profits. These include Proshred Security, War Child Canada, Street Kids International and the Canadian Landmine Foundation.
