Volunteer and Donor Recognition Evening


Our volunteers and donors are the heart and soul of BFO-Toronto. 

Each year during Volunteer Appreciation week BFO – Toronto celebrates our volunteers and our generous donors.

On April 21st we hosted an evening to thank our volunteers and donors for their tremendous support, we would cease to exist without them.

Our thanks to Justin Linden of Linden & Associates for once again sponsoring the evening, we are so grateful for your continued support.

This year we celebrated with Elaine Gort and Barb Lazroe who have been volunteers for 25 years! Amazing women.

The Founders Award went to two long time volunteers Shevaun McGrath and Greg New, who are ending their time on the Board of Directors this year, but will continue to volunteer with us. Thank you!

The recipient of the Noah Thorek Award this year was Agnes Struik, a long-time volunteer who has been instrumental in developing, supporting and delivering the Youth and Children’s programs. We could not offer such a valuable program without you, thank you Agnes!

It is often sadness and grief that bring volunteers and donors to BFO-Toronto but it is the joy of giving and caring that keeps them supporting us. Thank You All!
