The Circle of Seven Delivers… In Time For Christmas!

On December 18th, 2014 the Circle of Seven made stops across the city of Windsor to hand deliver cheques to several incredibly worthwhile causes, just in time for Christmas.
These Not-For-Profit Organizations were beneficiaries of the Circle’s annual “Denim & Diamonds” Gala, held on November 1st, 2013.
In total, over $80,000 was delivered:

As a beneficiary of the Circle of 7’s “Denim & Diamonds Gala”, the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) received a cheque from the Circle in the amount of $15,000.  The proceeds will assist in the funding of the CMHA’s Bereavement program, along with $50,000 from a private donor and friend of the Circle of Seven.
