Friendship Dinner


Presented By:

Join us for this year’s Friendship Dinner –  “Journey of Hope!”

Headlines over the past two years have exposed the homelessness crisis our region faces.  But there is a hope-filled side of this story. Through risk-taking, collaboration and relentless pursuits, Waterloo Region is finding innovative solutions – together.  We can’t wait to share these solutions with you!

Join us at this year’s Friendship Dinner where together we’ll celebrate why there is reason for hope and how you can help change the story for the better!

JOIN US ON SATURDAY, OCT. 22!  – 5 to 9 p.m.  Bingemans Conference Centre


Inspirational Speaker Joe Roberts, aka the Skid Row CEO, will be sharing his lived experience with homelessness.  Having experienced both catastrophic failure and extraordinary success Joe teaches how anyone can overcome perceived limitations and live their dreams.  You don’t want to miss this incredible story!
