You’re Invited to the 2020 Virtual Fall Banquet & Silent Auction

Join us online on Thurs. Nov. 12, 2020 for our annual Fall Banquet & Silent Auction. This year, the event will be hosted entirely online to help protect the safety of all guests and prevent the spread of COVID-19. Funds raised from the evening will provide treatment and aftercare for men overcoming addictions at Quintin Warner House.

Guy Felicella (pictured left), Addictions Recovery Advocate, will be joining us for the evening as our Inspirational Speaker. He spent 30 years in addiction, dying and being brought back to life six times. With his treacherous journey through substance use and his repeated attempts at detox and treatment, Guy has become a respected and trusted expert advising on recovery, harm reduction, and eliminating stigma.

We would like to extend a special thank you to the Platinum sponsor of the  Fall Banquet & Silent Auction, Paul J. Pickering and Associates Limited. We greatly appreciate all sponsors and partners for their generosity and the compassion they continue to extend to neighbours in need.

If you have any questions, please reach out to Mackenzie (Lauermeier) Warren at mlauermeier@missionservices.ca or 519-233-2807 ext. 2134.

Purchase your tickets online today by visiting mslfallbanquet.eventbrite.ca.

We hope you will join us for this meaningful evening. Together, we can help men break free of addiction.

Thank You!

We are elated to announce that Drewlo Holdings has pledged a gift of $110,000 to maintain 24/7 staffing at Quintin Warner House. Around the clock staffing is the gold standard of care for men overcoming addiction and maintaining sobriety.
