Bishop's Dinner for Community Needs

20th Anniversary of the Bishop’s Dinner for Community Needs!
Save the Date – October 13, 2022 – Italian Canadian Centre
Join us for Food, Friendship and Support of our Guelph and Wellington Community.

Each year the Wellington Catholic District School Board, in partnership with the Diocese of Hamilton, organizes an annual Bishop’s Dinner for Community Needs.  All proceeds directly fund community organizations and projects within Guelph and Wellington County. The annual dinner has been a tremendous success since its inaugural event, thanks to the generous support and enthusiastic participation from members of our community. Proceeds from the event will help efforts to assist families needing support with food security, mental health services, access to children’s recreational programs and support programs in our community.

This year the Wellington Catholic District School Board is hosting the 20th Annual Bishop’s Dinner for Community Needs on Thursday, October 13th, 2022. After two years of hosting virtual fundraisers in response to the pandemic, we are looking forward to the opportunity to be back together, to share friendship, and to support those in need within our community.  As this is our 20th anniversary, we are hoping to make this a truly special homecoming event for past participants as well as an opportunity to welcome new community members to this event. 

Over the past 19 years, we have raised approximately $733,000 to help support children’s educational programming, access to food to those in need in our community, mental health programs, environmental stewardship initiatives, and much more. We have heard directly from organizations and those they serve, how this funding has made a significant difference in their lives and in our community. We hope to reach $775,000 through this year’s efforts.

This year we are committed to investments for four recipients in Guelph and Wellington. This year’s beneficiaries include:

  • Children’s Foundation of Guelph and Wellington
  • Canadian Mental Health Association – Waterloo- Wellington
  • Centre-Wellington Food Bank
  • St. Vincent De Paul Society
