Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic the 18th Annual Bishop’s Dinner for Community Needs will be transformed into the “Thanksliving Project” for 2020.

Although we are cancelling the dinner event, we hope to raise funds in the form of sponsorships and donations, understanding that the need is even greater than ever before.

Our goal is to fundraise a minimum of $20,000 to be distributed equally across the four designated recipient organizations:

• The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH)
• The Children’s Foundation of Guelph and Wellington
• Ignatius Jesuit Centre Educational Programs and Environmental Stewardship
• Welcome Drop In Centre

Sponsors and donors are invited to sponsor or make a donation, in whatever amount possible. The Thanksliving Project will conclude on October 31, 2020. Click here to donate now.
"I am proud to be a student in a board that takes on initiatives such as the Thanksliving Project 2020 that will directly impact the families and students within our very own community. It is a great opportunity to continue the tradition of giving that has always been a focus of
the annual Bishop's Dinner".
