We hosted an event
April 20, 2023
at Catalyst 137
137 Glasgow Street, Kitchener
to showcase the good you have enabled .
120 People came to see what this community made possible!
And to meet others who have been part of this success.
There was no fixed agenda;
People came and went as they wanted.
This was NOT a fund-raiser.
This was to thank the community and share the positive impact made possible.
We are proud of the charitable work we have done, but we know all activities were made possible by this community.
Here are some pictures from the event.
