Celebrating Community Champions 2020

A Virtual Giving Event

Celebrating Community Champions 2020 – A Virtual Giving Event

Celebrating Community Champions 2020 is both a new video showing Empower Simcoe’s wide range of community services, many of the people we support, and our frontline workers, and also our signature fundraising event for the year. We invite you to watch the video below, then visit to show your support. All proceeds go to the Empower Simcoe Foundation to ensure people of all abilities have the opportunity to lead a meaningful life.

For 24 years, Empower Simcoe’s annual fashion show celebrated the people we support with plenty of good food, entertainment and joy. This year, though we can’t gather indoors, we still want everyone to have fun cheering on your friends and fellow community members in a safe way. Introducing Celebrating Community Champions 2020 – A Virtual Giving Event.
