John Howard Society: Dining for Literacy, October 3
Please come support the literacy program of the John Howard Society and attend the gala dinner on October 3rd (see details below). We have an amazing keynote speaker (David A. Robertson) and lots of great prizes in a live auction (this includes tickets for the Jets, WestJet, ViaRail, and the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra!).
The bright and delightful Terry MacLeod is our emcee for the evening and Gemini-Award winning screenwriter Jordan Wheeler is our official poet laureate.
We'll honour an outstanding person dedicated to literacy with inmates and hand out our Learner of the Year Award as well. Plus there's live music and great food.
