We are privileged and honoured to be hosting former Stanley Cup champion and Olympic gold medallist Theo Fleury for an evening of mental health, hope, inspiration and sharing in May called “The Power of Me Too”. We are also thrilled to welcome former Barrie basketball standout and current NCAA Stanford Cardinal women’s basketball team member, Mikaela Brewer, to share her story that evening. Derek McLean and John Eaton will be providing the amazing live music for the evening. This event will take place at the prestigious Golf Club at Lora Bay in Thornbury, Ontario on Saturday, May 11th, 2019. It will be an evening that will prove beneficial to so many and not to be missed.

Guests can email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve seats, to pay for seats via e-transfer, (to that email address, which is usually the easiest), by cash or by cheque (payable to the order of James Carson).
