Every year, we gather to celebrate another year of service, to share our success, and thank our generous supporters in the community. We call this event, “Bissellebration”, our annual Gala and Auction.
260 of Bissell Centre’s closest supporters, sponsors, staff and volunteers shared this experience on May 5 at Sutton Place Hotel. In addition to media and special guests in attendance, we were honoured by the presence of the Lieutenant Governor, His Honour, Col. (Ret’d) The Honourable Donald S. Ethell. We would also like to thank Eileen Bell of 630 CHED for emceeing the event, as well as Mark Scholz for acting as our auctioneer.
Bissellebration is not just about celebrating. It is also about ensuring that we have the funding and assistance to continue and expand the services that we provide to people in need.
I am pleased to share that funds raised through the event totaled over $80,000, including $20,000 for children.
Bissell Centre would like to thank this year’s sponsors:
- Servus Credit Union
- PCL Construction
- Boardwalk Rental Communities
- Capital Power
Thank you to everyone who attended and made Bissellebration 2012 such a successful endeavour. We invite you to join us next year for Bissellebration 2013!
