Begging for Change 2017 Dinner Banquet

Begging for Change is a campaign that supports the efforts of Lighthouse Mission. Funds raised from this event will focus specifically on transitioning people from lives of homelessness, uncertainty and crisis to where they have shelter, access to support programs, mental health & addiction treatment programs, regular nutritious meals and a foundation as they begin to rebuild their lives.

It takes approximately $2,000 to transition an individual from their initial encounter with Lighthouse Mission through our programs to the point where they are ready to step back into community to live a healthy life. Proceeds from the Rockin’ for a Reason – Begging for Change event will provide a hand up to individuals within the inner city of Winnipeg, who need, have asked for and want change. This can make all the difference to them in taking the first steps towards improving their lives. The goal for the inaugural Rockin’ for a Reason – Begging for Change event is to raise enough funds to assist 5 people ($10,000) that are currently “Begging for Change”.

We are pleased to announce the just over $20,000 was raised at the 2017 banquet. We would like to thank all of our sponsors that helped to make this possible.

A special thank you to Reese’s Pieces project in addition to being an event sponsor they donated $3,700 towards the Bagging for Change.
