    Thanks to this incredible support, the proceeds from the silent auction broke all records at the HOPE annual conference held May 4, 2019. Funds will be used for the education of the membership, so HOPE can grow and meet the growing needs of communities. It is expected that two or more community groups will open in the coming months.  A special thanks to Underwood's Catering for the excellent food, Starbucks (Mount Pleasant) for the great coffee, and the amazing staff at the Toronto Botanical Garden, adding to the success of the day. A heartfelt thanks to the speakers for sharing their time and expertise - Maureen and James Brine, Ann Douglas and from Jack.org Gabby and Kristen.
