For the first time in three years, the Bishop’s Dinner for Community Needs will return to an in-person event!
In partnership with the Diocese of Hamilton, the Wellington Catholic DSB will host the 20th Annual Bishop’s Dinner for Community Needs on Thursday, October 13th, 2022 at the Italian Canadian Club here in Guelph.
The annual event, which includes dinner, a silent auction and showcase of student talent, has been a tremendous success since its inaugural event thanks to the generous support and enthusiastic participation from members of our community. All proceeds from the event will assist families needing support with food security, mental health services, access to children’s recreational programs and support programs in our community.
Over the course of its 19-year history, the annual Bishop’s Dinner for Community Needs has raised over $730,000 for community organizations in need and hopes to reach $775,000 through this year’s efforts.
This year’s beneficiaries include the Centre Wellington Food Bank, Children’s Foundation of Guelph and Wellington, the Canadian Mental Health Association, and the St. Vincent de Paul Society of Guelph and Wellington County.
We look forward to the opportunity to be back together, to share friendship, and to support those in need within our community! We are hoping to make this a truly special homecoming event for past participants, as well as an opportunity to welcome new community members to this event.
