Warden’s Gala Rakes In the Dough for United Way of Simcoe Muskoka

13th Annual Event Raises $55,000

An annual effort from Simcoe County’s head honcho representing a real win for the United Way.

The 13th Annual Simcoe County Warden’s Gala at the Club at Bond Head last evening saw $55,000 raised in support for the United Way of Simcoe Muskoka. “I would like to thank all our generous sponsors who attended the 13th annual Warden’s Gala,” said County of Simcoe Warden George Cornell. “Over the past 60 years, United Way Simcoe Muskoka has provided supports to our residents in need and helped equip our partners with resources to implement life-changing programs. We are proud to continue to support United Way Simcoe Muskoka through our Gala, which has raised more than $755,000 to-date.”

“We are thankful for the relationship that we have with the County,” said United Way Simcoe Muskoka CEO Dale Biddell. “It’s a relationship that extends far beyond workplace philanthropy. By sharing knowledge and data and by working together, we are able to make the deepest investment and impact on the social issues that limit opportunities for a full life for too many of our residents.”

This year, the Gala was speakeasy-themed, highlighting many of the beer, wine, and cider produced across the County of Simcoe.
