LITE up the NITE Casino Royale
For the first time ever, LITE – Local Investment Toward Employment hosted a lavish evening of glitz and glam at the Manitoba Hydro building on Saturday, March 12th 2016.
The event featured a night of casino-style gaming, a live DJ, dance floor and a songstress, and a Birchwood Luxury Car Auction – winning bid had their pick of a 1-year lease on a luxury vehicle; Lexus, Infiniti or BMW. The event also featured a silent and live auction with prizes including a trip for 2 to Jasper with VIA Rail, a VIP Chef’s Table Experience at Earl’s Main and a Goldeyes Sky Suite – just to name a few!
All funds raised at the event supported LITE’s community economic development (CED) grants.
Our CED grants are an integral form of financial support for our partner organizations. These LITE-funded programs offer training and employment to inner city residents who face barriers to employment. The marginalized members of our community who benefit from these programs range from women to newcomers, youth and indigenous people.
