Surrounded by friends and family on the beautiful shores of Lake Joseph in Muskoka, it was the perfect way to celebrate CNIB Lake Joe’s 60th Anniversary Weekend – in style!
Thanks to the community’s amazing participation and support, CNIB Lake Joe’s 60th Anniversary weekend raised a grand total of $370,000 for CNIB Lake Joe’s capital redevelopment campaign!
Included in this total, building off 2020’s CNIB Muskoka Dock-to-Dock: Party with a Purpose event, the CNIB Muskoka Dock-to-Dock: Poker Run event and its 50/50 raffle raised over $130,000 (net) to date. And we’re not done yet! There’s still time to donate at cnib.ca/docktodock to support the purchase of adaptive sports and independent living skills equipment for a new multi-purpose recreation and learning facility at CNIB Lake Joe!
- More than 250 donors, sponsors, participants, and volunteers came together to make the event a great success.
- We were thrilled to be joined by celebrity hosts Joan Kelley Walker (returning emcee), Rod Black, and Ben Mulroney!
- A huge thank you to the mighty, unstoppable team of Nancy Simonot (Co-Chair), Helen Hunt (Co-Chair), Tracey Burton, Tom Cross, Anthony Domenici, and ACBS-Toronto for organizing another successful annual CNIB Muskoka event!
Our CNIB Lake Joe 60th Anniversary “Super Six” Challenge donors each pledged a remarkable $60,000 toward the campaign. Join the “Super Six” and help us reach our goal of $1.6M. We want to extend our heartfelt thanks to the incredible “Super Six” donors who have confirmed so far!
