It is that time of year again and everyone is looking forward to the Port Cares 15th Annual Fundraising Dinner and Auction at the Italian Canadian Cultural Centre  on November 29th, 2013.

This event is the main fundraiser for Port Cares and all proceeds go towards vital services such as food, shelter and crisis support in our community. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, business partners and guests who attend this gala event we are hoping to raise over $50,000.00 towards vital programs. We are almost sold out! Please contact us at 905-834-3629 ext.245 to reserve your seat.
