Elgin Construction-Pledging 2 years in a row.

100 Plus People Each Pledging $100 to raise $10,000 Plus for Local Charity. Together making a big impact!

Thanks to the generosity of 200 individuals, each contributing $100, we not only hit our goal of raising $20,000 for local charity but also achieved a fantastic milestone. For the first time ever, every participating charity received a financial lift at our wrap-up event.


The theme of breaking down barriers echoed throughout, addressing vital issues like reducing isolation, promoting caregivers' self-care, igniting ambitious dreams in youth, offering tools and support for parents raising wonderfully complex children, creating a safe haven for 2SLGBTQI+ youth, and infusing indigenous healing traditions into a addictions and mental health recovery retreat.


All the presenting charities were deserving, but a special shoutout goes to Somerset Recovery Retreat, crowned the winner of the $10,000 prize. Thank you once again for your incredible support!
