An Evening in Support of the Homewood Research Institute

A Message of Thanks to Friends and Supporters of the Homewood Research Institute

We wish to express our sincere gratitude to all who sponsored and supported HRI’s fundraising event on May 1st. It was a pleasure to kick off Mental Health Week 2017 with an event that brought together a diverse group of people who share a common goal of improving the lives of people being treated for mental illness and addiction.

Thank you for supporting us in our efforts to help individuals whose lives are affected by post-traumatic stress disorder. As a direct result of your generosity, HRI is now able to recruit a Doctoral or Post-Doctoral Fellow who will be dedicated specifically to PTSD research.

We are incredibly grateful for the support of the following individuals and organizations for making this event a great success:

Homewood Health Centre
Wes and Christine Gee
Mathews, Dinsdale and Clark LLP

Linamar, Guelph Chamber of Commerce, Guelph Today, AFYA Skin and Body Clinic, Cumming Clean Laundry & Uniform, Document Imaging Partners, HealthPRO Procurement Services Inc., Otsuka Canada Pharmaceutical Inc., Sleeman Breweries Inc., Toyota Motor Manufacturing Canada Inc., Norfolk Guest House, HR Entertainment, Floral Images, Brandon Marsh Photography, M&T Printing Group, MediaDoc, VIA Rail Canada, WestJet, and Eugene Melnyk.

Through the generosity of our sponsors, special donors, the many local businesses who provided prizes for our Penny Social event, the wonderful staff at River Run Centre, our volunteer team and everyone who purchased a ticket to this event, we are taking a great step toward improving the lives of Canadians through PTSD research.

On behalf of the Homewood Research Institute, we sincerely thank you for making this first public gathering of our community a success.
