Our 2016 Benefit Cocktail Party takes place on Wednesday, November 2 in our beautiful heritage building that’s a National Historic Site. As in previous years, the event will include a fabulous silent auction and tasty smoked meat. Mutsumi Takahashi, the popular CTV Montreal Anchor, is emceeing and, as in previous years, the fabulous Dave Turner Jazz Trio are playing.
This year’s Guest of Honour is Hon. W. David Angus, Co-Chair of the Atwater Library Capital Campaign and generous contributor to our organization. He had a distinguished career for some 50 years as a lawyer and corporate director and served in the Senate of Canada from 1993 to 2012. He has also made major volunteer contributions to the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC), St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Homes, Brain Canada and McGill University’s Chair in Canadian-Scottish Studies.
Our annual fundraiser generates awareness of our organization and regularly contributes significant funds for community educational and cultural programs and services – a vital part of our modest annual budget of about $550,000. This year our need for support is more compelling than ever. There are growing community demands for our services plus pressure to spend to conserve our 98-year-old heritage building.
