Inclusion Saskatchewan is proud to announce that our annual Inclusion Breakfast fundraising event raised $146,000 - funds that will go directly towards supporting individuals with intellectual disabilities in Saskatchewan. The one-hour early morning event, hosted at Saskatoon’s Prairieland Park, saw over 400 attendees including dignitaries from the City of Saskatoon and Government of Saskatchewan.
The breakfast’s various presentations included warm welcomes from self-advocate members of our ICAN group, two videos featuring recent success stories in the areas of employment and self-advocacy, and two personal testimonies about transitioning out of Valley View Centre as well as finding support after losing a child with a disability. To close out the event, representatives from TD Bank announced a $10,000 challenge gift, pledging to match the first year amounts of all multi-year pledges up to $10,000.
We’d like to once again thank all of the donors, attendees, sponsors, and staff for making this event such a remarkable success. Thanks to your work bringing people to the breakfast and inspiring attendees to give, we can continue to work towards changing more lives for persons with intellectual disabilities in Saskatchewan.
