On behalf of the Community Mental Wellness Association of Canada, we cordially invite you to attend our 22nd Anniversary Fundraising Gala Night and celebrate our commitment to bettering the lives of those affected by mental health. Our celebration will be held on Sunday, August 20th at 7:00 pm.
The Community Mental Wellness Association of Canada (formerly The Chinese Mental Wellness Association of Canada), founded in 1995, is a registered, non-profit charitable organization providing the following services to people in our local community:
Mental health education advocacy/workshops
Peer support therapy and referrals
Youth leadership training
For the past 22 years, the CMWAC has strived to educate the public about mental illness, despite it being a taboo subject for many people. We continue to face challenges in delivering our services due to government underfunding and limited resources. Our annual fundraising gala is crucial to enable us to continue providing essential services to the community. As a valued community partner, you can make a difference. There are several ways you can help us keep our door open:
Option A: buy a ticket to our 22nd Anniversary Fundraising Gala ($20/$50). Available through http://bit.ly/2usB5xl
Option B: place a business or personal advertisement in our 22nd Anniversary yearbook (see attached)
Option C: donate an item or service
Option D: join us as a member/board director ($15/year or $100 for lifetime membership for individuals)
Option E: pledge a corporate sponsorship to receive recognition in our media campaigns and event posters ($500/year)
The gala fundraiser will feature a dynamic program, including prominent speakers, singers and performers. Last year’s event raised over $32,000 and we anticipate this year’s fundraising will exceed that. Our target is $38,000. The names of sponsors, advertisers, and contributors will not only be acknowledged at the gala event and in the year book but also in our promotional materials such as our website and membership email and bulletins.
