Please join us for a new and innovative special event taking place in York Region this October 25th, 2012. Six regional charities have joined forces to create the Inaugural Dream Halloween – An Evening of Philanthropy event benefiting York Region residents supported by the Alzheimer Society of York Region, Big Brothers Big Sisters of York, Character Community Foundation of York Region, Doane House Hospice, Rose of Sharon Services for Young Mothers and the Women’s Centre of York Region. This collaborative effort is a wonderful representation of charities working together to expand their outreach and meet the needs of many at-risk groups within our community.
Dream Halloween is a unique fundraising experience that brings together leaders from our community to help several charities at once. It is a salute to the selflessness and tireless dedication of those individuals who profoundly impact the quality of life and fabric of York Region.
Dream Halloween features a number of regional ‘philanthropic stars’ vying for the title of Dream Philanthropist 2012. The aim of the event is to recognize individuals who have contributed both financially, and through their volunteer efforts, toward improved quality life in York Region.
Philanthropy is the effort or inclination to increase the well-being of humankind.
