Thank you Victoria!
The event was a smashing success with over 400 citizens who came out to support Victoria’s Youth at Risk. We managed to raise over $100,000 for the Youth Empowerment Society.
This amount of money will help fund programs for these teenagers (aged 13-19) such as Emergency shelter, Independent living support and our Detox program (which has a 75% success rate) for the coming year.
