Home Horizon has 3 signature events every year that account for approximately 40% of our annual fundraising revenues.
The Coldest Night of the Year – February 24, 2018
On February 24, 2018, Collingwood was the scene of a wonderful celebration. This is the night that the people of South Georgian Bay participated in a 2, 5 or 10 km winter walk hosted in 120+ cities across Canada for the “Coldest Night of the Year”. The Coldest Night of the Year is a super-fun, family-friendly walking fundraiser that raises money for the hungry, homeless and hurting. 2018 was a record year for Collingwood and we raised just under $50,000 in support of our youth programs.
Bowls for Beds – April 22, 2018
This year was a huge success! We had over 500 people join us at the Georgian Bay Hotel & Conference Centre to sample soups from 22 local restaurants and chefs in South Georgian Bay. . In preparation for the event, local school children learned about homelessness in our community and painted the bowls for the event. A huge thank you to our restaurants & chefs; our particiaping schools; silent auction donors; sponsors; volunteers and attendees for making this such an incredible success!!
