Former Prime Minister Jean Chretien said of 9/11, "Thanks to the countless acts of kindness and compassion ... here in Gander, it will live forever in memory as a day of comfort and healing." The Homeward Bound evening at Federation Hall will entertain and amaze our guests. Your ticket includes appetizers, dinner and dessert. A cash bar will be available. Don't forget to bid on select Live Auction items or to purchase a Grand Prize raffle ticket.
Corporate Tables available.
On the morning of September 11th, 2001 the United States shut down its airspace, leaving dozens of planes and thousands of passengers stranded in mid-air. Without hesitating, the tiny airport in Gander Newfoundland opened its runways, taking in 38 wide-body planes on transatlantic flights.
As the Washington Post noted, “The people of Gander, a town of no more than 10,000 looked at all those planes lined up, and they just wanted to help.”
Join us on September 28th as Bonnie Harris, Gander’s SPCA Manager, recounts how her small shelter, with a staff of 3 and 25 volunteers, found a way to care for the pets (including two great apes) on those planes.
Special guest Cindy Cherry (yes, that Cherry family) will share her experiences of adopting from the KWHS. And pulling all the threads together will be our MC for the evening, CTV’s Christina Succi.
Homeward Bound, an evening to raise much needed funds for the pets in our care, will include an array of appetizers, dinner and dessert. Guests will have an opportunity to bid on special live auction items and purchase raffle tickets on our Grand Prize.
Individual tickets are only $90 and corporate tables are available. For more information please contact Marjorie Brown at 519-745-5615 ext 229 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to welcoming you to our first Homeward Bound event.
