Celebrations help to create and cement relationships. Our Family & Friends Dine-a-Round offers the opportunity to connect, while fundraising at a level that is comfortable to you.
What is a Dine-a-Round?
A Dine-a-Round is a series of fundraising dinner events held and sponsored by independent hosts who want to support the Luce Initiative’s annual fundraising drive.
Each host decides on the location, number of guests and scale of their event. Hosts work within their comfort level to create an enriching experience that enables their guests to reconnect and recharge while contributing to youth’s mental health programs.
In addition guests who participate in the fundraising dinner have the opportunity to learn more about how 'Luce helps' with the hope that many engage as a Host Ambassador in next year’s annual drive.
Our inaugural Friends & Family Dine-a-Round supported Sunnybrook's Family Navigation Project.
The Family Navigation Project (FNP) is a non-profit, philanthropically-funded program that provides help to youth, 13 to 26 years old experiencing mental health and/or addiction issues, and their families.
This program provides expert navigation of the mental health and addictions service system for youth and their families living in the Greater Toronto Area.
