On Saturday night, more than 200 members of the Peterborough community gathered for the second annual Mayor Bennett Giving Gala.
This special night raised over $70,000 this year in support of the Community Foundation of Greater Peterborough, the amazing organization working with and supporting charities throughout the City and County of Peterborough.
"I am delighted with the tremendous support for the Giving Gala," said Mayor Bennett. "Our community members have once again demonstrated their generous and caring spirit, which serves as an important reminder of who we are and what we believe in."
This sold-out event provided guests with an opportunity to connect with many like-minded individuals, companies and organizations who are interested in helping to a build a vibrant and strong Peterborough.
The proceeds from the evening will support the Community Foundation in its mission to improve the lives of people in the City and County through local giving, grant making and community development initiatives.
