2014 Tiawenk Dinner Recap

tiawenk-2014-1The Canadian Martyrs’ Shrine says Tiawenk!

The Community says Tiawenk!

Tiawenk is the Wendat (Huron) word for thank you.

On September 26, The Canadian Martyrs’ Shrine hosted the Tiawenk Fundraising Dinner, to express gratitude to the local community for their support of the Canadian Martyrs’ Shrine.

The dinner was held at Restaurant Sainte-Marie, where those present enjoyed excellent entertainment, food and company. The dinner, silent auction and live auction raised more than $19,000 in support of the extensive renovation of the 88-year-old water system at the Shrine. The total estimated cost of the entire project is $465,000 with completion date of May 1, 2015.

Thank you to our auctioneers, Paul Hamelin and Lorraine DeCarli; Nick Boudouris and the staff at Restaurant Sainte-Marie; all our donors; all who attended; and the planning committee volunteers who made the night a success.
