Event description

Description

Fort McMurray has been known for the land of opportunity, where oil is the new gold and people come to make a quick buck. Today, that view is just something we see in our rear-view mirror and we consider Fort McMurray home. A community that appreciates our differences but a community that stands together as one! A city that comes together in tough times and community members like you, that feel compelled to help when our brother/sister needs a helping hand. 

All of us were/are affected by the Wildfire that raged through our city and forced us to leave our homes. As a community we are extremely proud of all the hard work the first responders did and continue to do to save as much of our community as possible. There is a long road ahead for us all but together we will be able to rebuild our community.

With the recent economic downturn in 2015, our region has seen a large amount of lay offs and in turn a large amount of people needing assistance with having one of the most basic necessities of life: Food

Our local community Food Bank has been hit hard as demand has been increasing and donations have decreased and with the destruction of the wildfire, more will the seeking their assistance.

We are hosting a formal Black and White Gala on October 1, 2016 at MacDonald Island to raise funds for the Wood Buffalo Food Bank and with your contribution in this evening, we can make this event a great success. A Gala provides the perfect juxtaposition to the issue and we commit to minimal to no waste of food, and providing a humble reminder prior to the seasons of celebration to follow.
