The Children’s Foundations Annual Gala Raises Record Amount!!

Updated: Jul 13, 2022

After two years in the making, The Guardians Angel Gala is a huge

success, raising a record-breaking $232,562!

Bernie Ouellet joined The Children’s Foundation guardian angel family as he was honoured in front of 200+ guests this past Saturday.

“Once again our community demonstrated how generous it is in supporting young people that need help. Celebrating Bernie Ouellet and all that he has done for our community, inspired everyone to reach deep and help children and youth at risk of abuse or neglect. There are so many people and businesses in the Hastings, Northumberland, and Prince Edward Counties who supported this event, and we are grateful to every single one who donated, sponsored, volunteered their time and resources, and came out to enjoy an amazing in person event that was long overdue. Thank you to everyone and especially to our Angel Bernie Ouellet for allowing us to celebrate his amazing contributions to our community while raising money for children and youth.” Says Gala chair, Liz Lehtinen.

All donations will go towards our Reach for Success Bursary and Scholarship program, Camps of Hope program, and Playing for Keeps program.

The Children’s Foundation is beyond thankful and appreciates all the generosity from our community. It is truly inspiring to see our community come together to help at-risk children and youth in need.
