Tuesday, March 5th, 2019 from 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm (doors open at 11:30 am) marks the 21st anniversary of the Child Witness Centre’s Annual Pancake Lunch fundraiser. While we know it is still a few months away, we’re hoping you’ll save the date—it just wouldn’t be the same without you!
It’s hard to imagine that last year, 1,255 local children and youth who were victims or witnesses of abuse or crime along with more than 1,400 of their parents and caregivers needed help through the criminal justice process.
Your previous support helped us build the Pancake Lunch to what it is today: A highly-anticipated event that provides a networking opportunity with your colleagues, community, and friends while enjoying a fun lunch and knowing your participation will make a real difference in the lives of children and youth who have been victims or witnesses of abuse or crime.
Event, Partner and Table Sponsorship packages are available as well. Please contact Chris Martin for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 519-744-0904 x221

The 4th annual Westmount Tradition Charity Doubles Tennis Tournament, held June 8th to 10th, welcomed 110 players to three days of competition and camaraderie in support of the Child Witness Centre.
Through players’ fundraising efforts and the generosity of donors, sponsors and businesses – almost $60,000 was raised, funds that will be shared equally between the Child Witness Centre and the Grand River Hospital Foundation to support community initiatives that ensure a healthy, safe community for all.
Our heartfelt thanks is shared with event sponsors, silent and live auction donors, players and their supporters for their dedication and generosity – your partnership ensures that more than 25 children, youth and their families will have the support of an Advocate at the newly-opened Child and Youth Advocacy Centre (CYAC) – helping to foster hope and empowering them towards strong futures.
Thank you to our sponsors!
2018 Pancake Lunch Success!
A Shrove Tuesday tradition for 20 years, our 2018 Pancake Lunch raised an incredible $28,000 in just a few short hours.
The event, held Tuesday at Bingemans’ Marshall Hall, welcomed dignitaries, business owners, community champions and friends of the agency – totalling almost 600 guests. The funds raised will support our work, ensuring children and youth who are, or may become, victims or witnesses of abuse or crime will receive the support, education and advocacy needed as they journey through the criminal justice process.
We would also like to recognize Event Sponsors Septimatech Group Inc. and St. Jerome’s University – their support for the Child Witness Centre’s Pancake Lunch is deeply appreciated.
Thank you again for joining hands with us on Tuesday – the sense of hope and commitment to building a community where children and youth are safe, valued and heard was simply incredible. And we are grateful.
We are already beginning our plans for next year’s event – please circle Tuesday, March 5, 2019 on your calendar!
