Celebrating Community Champions 2020

A Virtual Giving Event

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.

Instead of selling tickets, we’re having an online fundraiser starting September 10. Then on October 22 at 7 pm, the original date and time for our Fashion Show, we invite you to tune into our world premiere live video presentation to cheer on this year’s champions. The video will premiere right here on this page empowersimcoe.ca/virtual-giving-event and on other streaming platforms.
