There is a lot of great stuff to do this summer. I don’t know about you but my summer involves trips out to the cabin, taking in the SaskTel Jazz Festival, walking Broadway during the PotashCorp Fringe Festival, taking the boys to the Ex, and being upset that I am on a diet while we go as a family to Taste of Saskatchewan.
It easy to forget that we even during our summer of festivals, there is a lot of poverty in our midst. Donations to The Lighthouse drop over the summer months, while the need is often higher. On Monday our women’s emergency shelterbroke new records for need and the we are seeing more people come in hungry and without shelter. Saskatoon has the capacity to make this summer a summer of fresh starts for those in need but we need your help.
During a summer of good times with friends and need in our city, please consider combining the two and host an event for The Lighthouse.
Whether you are holding a backyard BBQ, a steak night, or casual golf tournament with friends, we want to partner with you to make it a success. We appreciate your efforts and want to provide as much support as we can to ensure that your event is the best it can be.
