Host a Fundraiser
Your fundraiser will help transform mental health in our community. Whether you’re creating a brand new event or selecting Canadian Mental Health Association York and South Simcoe to receive the proceeds of an existing community or corporate event, we’d love to hear from you!
Whatever your idea – a walk, dodgeball tournament, bake sale, party, or a wacky or epic challenge – we have the tools to help you create an event to remember.
Or email email@example.com to ask us about setting up your own DIY fundraiser, or talk with us about your idea.

AMBIANCE – It’s a feeling!
Our dinner and dance fundraising event is called AMBIANCE – “It’s a feeling”.
We chose the tagline “it’s a feeling” because Covid-19 has completely changed the norm of the world and what we have now is the new normal, leaving people feeling hopeless, depressed, but we want to help re-inspire those dreams and visions. Covid-19 caused many people suffer from mental illnesses; not being able to see family or be around loved ones, losing a love one was tragic. Correspondently, we want to give back to an organization that can help people struggling with mental illnesses especially in Ontario.
Please join us on Saturday June 24, 2023 5pm – 10pm for a Caribbean evening that won’t disappoint because of the contagious fun, laughter, delicious food, entertainment, and, moreover a feeling of gratitude for life!
