On Tuesday, October 3rd, following lunch at the National Club, we gathered for the evening at McLean House. We are so grateful for our friends of Opportunity who came to share the evening with us. We enjoyed wine and delicious snacks while hearing from David Stiller, founder of Opportunity International Canada, and Janelle Lassonde, former chair of Opportunity International's Education Finance Campaign.
We were delighted to hear from David about the story of Opportunity International Canada that embodied in a beautiful handmade statue that he brought with him.
It was an honour to hear from Janelle Lassonde as she shared the potential in working to end poverty through education. New and old friends of Opportunity were able to learn more about this unique program and the impact that it will have in the upcoming years.
We are thankful for all our guests who joined us for this evening. We are hopeful that old and new friends were inspired to learn more and get involved with the Opportunity vision. We are working towards eliminating poverty in our lifetime and it is all thanks to you!
