A Night to Remember

MAM is Margaret’s signature fundraising event that occurs annually, since 2013. It’s name is a tongue-in-cheek figure of speech that was intended to reclaim negative language that is often used and contributes to the stigma of mental illness.

The event is aimed at changing the conversation. It’s an inspirational evening packed with an inspirational program where guests and allies gather together to help us keep our programs running.

Margaret’s Housing and Community Support Services (Margaret’s) is thrilled to present Acclaimed Canadian Actor, Author and Rights Advocate Joanne Vannicola, the 2020 Margaret Trudeau Mental Health Advocacy Award.

You Can Be a Change Maker

Mental illness is a complex problem – it is interwoven with homelessness, marginalization, trauma, addiction, and isolation.

But it doesn’t have to be.

Your gifts allow us to continue in our efforts to support vulnerable populations.

We know this work is too big to accomplish alone. Your support is a critical part of our endeavour and will not only help ensure our success but will also aid us in continuing and expanding our current programming.

All the proceeds go directly to support the work that Margaret’s does. The event is sponsored by a number of socially conscious organizations and individuals whose generosity knows no bound.

You can become a change maker too.
