On Thursday, November 14, 2019 at RBC Place London (formerly London Convention Centre), join Mission Services of London's signature evening, featuring a large silent auction, a delicious plated dinner, and an inspiring speaker.
Perdita Felicien, two time Olympian and World Champion hurdler, is the keynote speaker this year. Perdita credits a women's shelter in Durham Region with helping her family get on their feet. Her mother, who immigrated from St. Lucia, encountered many barriers, including displacement and poverty, which she found a way to overcome.
This year, the Fall Banquet & Silent Auction will highlight the impact of the Prevention of Homelessness Among Families (PHAF) program at Rotholme Family Shelter. Proceeds help families avoid or exit homelessness.
