Sources Gala turns into virtual fundraiser
For the first time in our history, the Sources Foundation’s annual gala fundraiser – Run for the Roses – will be delivered virtually and, for the first time ever, the general public can support our event and fundraising efforts through an online silent auction as well as an online 50/50 raffle draw!
Both online events are open from now until Monday November 9 at noon.
Your donations and bids will make a difference!
Together with our other fundraising efforts, we hope to raise $275,000 for
SOURCES’ Comfort and Care During COVID-19 response fund and social wellness programs.
These changes to our event are, unfortunately, a direct result of rising COVID-19 case numbers. This year’s 25th Anniversary Gala was scheduled for April 25, 2020 but, due to the pandemic, we postponed it to November 7 and transformed it into an intimate dinner experience that followed all safety protocols set by our Provincial Health Officer. However, given the rising number of infections, we decided earlier this week to turn the event into a virtual one for the safety of all involved. Learn more about our virtual event
We are grateful for the support and understanding of all our sponsors, donors and ticket holders as we worked to make these changes. We are also grateful to those who transitioned their sponsorships and tickets to a donation or postponed them to 2021. Thank you for being there for us in the spirit of community.
We have fantastic auction prizes including gift cards to Gotham Steakhouse and local establishments, a Family Membership to Science World, Date Night and Fitness Packages and more! If you can, place a bid, purchase tickets or make a donation. Help us spread the word by sharing this webpage.
As we ride out this ‘second wave,’ our community’s most vulnerable need your help more than ever. Funds raised will help us to meet the pressing demand for services that address food security, homelessness, mental health and more. Thank you for your support.
Your gift of any amount can…
- Give a young person hope through individual counselling with a skilled Registered Clinical Counsellor
- Prevent an at-risk individual from sliding into years of homelessness
- Allow us to buy TRIPLE the value of your donation’s worth of food to feed those who rely on our food banks
- Provide seniors with round-trip drives to their essential medical appointments
- Ensure that isolated individuals unable to leave their homes due to their disabilities receive groceries
- Transform someone’s life
“Things may look different but our purpose remains the same – to raise as much money as we can so that SOURCES is positioned to help the growing number of people who need help, encouragement and hope.” – Darrell Jones, Gala Chair and Save-On-Foods President
