Peterborough Pregnancy Support Services Annual Fundraising Gala “All About Love” took place Saturday (April 23rd) at The Venue in downtown Peterborough, and raised $55,487 for centre operations and expansions.
About 100 people attended the event, which featured dinner, silent auctions and guest speaker The Honourable Dr. Kellie Leitch—Member of Parliament for Simcoe-Grey and a paediatric orthopaedic surgeon. Kellie has practiced medicine at The Hospital for Sick Children and presently works as volunteer surgeon at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario.

"I was pleased to attend the Peterborough Pregnancy Support Services gala and fundraiser,” says Dr. Kellie Leitch. “I commend them for doing their part in providing guidance and help to those who need their community health care services.”
The funds raised from the gala will help to pay for the PPSS expansion happening this year, including a facility upgrade, restructure of their corporate operations, and the hire and training of staff in order to open as a clinic to provide specific health care services beginning with the confirmation of pregnancy.
Great crowd at The Venue
“The 100 people who attended our gala now have a better understanding of PPSS services and their plans for expansion," says Catia Skinner, Co-Chair of the event. "We hope they spread the word of how PPSS can help expecting parents facing unplanned pregnancy."
On Friday (April 22nd), Trent Central Student Association (TCSA) hosted a special "Paint Your Space" event at the Bata Library H Parking Lot on the Symons Campus at Trent University.
The event to paint parking spots was to celebrate the end of another school year and to say goodbye—and make their mark—on the famed parking lot H before it is removed in May for the building of the new Student Centre scheduled to open Fall 2017.
Trent student Chance Squires captured this great footage of the final painted spots that he sent to PTBOCanada. Watch the video below...
Your summer event can now include a PTBO H2O water station that shows up and provides refreshing, cold tap water.
The accessible mobile station has eight water fountains and eight water bottle refill stations. This picture below is similar to what it will look like—but Peterborough Utilities tells PTBOCanada it is in the final stage of construction and will be digitally wrapped with their branding.
