2018 Tribute Dinner

On June 8th, 2018, the Yorktown Family Services Humanitarian Award for Community Service was presented to Kate and David Daniels in recognition of their many years of dedication to making a difference in the lives of others. Kate and David are both guided by what they refer to as “PSR” or “Personal Social Responsibility,” focussed on active participation in smaller non-profits that emphasize youth and the arts.

The 2018 Tribute Dinner honouring Kate and David was a resounding success, raising over $230,000. As honourees, the Daniels have helped elevate awareness of Yorktown’s charity, enabling them to continue to offer innovative, evidence-based programs to children, youth, women and families in one of Ontario’s most under-resourced communities.

Yorktown Family Services is grateful to our honourees, Kate and David Daniels, as well as our Co-Chairs, Salah Bachir and Jacob Yerex, and of course all of the sponsors, donors, and attendees who all contributed to the success of this important fundraising event.

Please see the list of supporters who helped make this event a wonderful success…and check out the awesome photo gallery!
