      Hope in the City Leadership Breakfast Toronto 2017

      THE BREAKFAST The Hope in the City Leadership Breakfast is one of the Salvation Army’s signature, Christmas fundraising events. The breakfast draws over 400 guests including, prominent business leaders, influential community members and political decision makers. Join us for a morning of inspiration and to network with other corporate leaders who share the desire to transform the lives of the most vulnerable in our community. THE SALVATION ARMY The Salvation Army provides hope and dignity to those experiencing hard times. Today, approximately three million Canadians, or one in 11 people, live in poverty. The Salvation Army recognizes that poverty is a critical issue, and that everyone has the right to access basic necessities such as nutritious food, health care, education and economic opportunity. HOW TO GIVE There are multiple ways to support The Salvation Army through the Hope in the City Leadership Breakfast: by sponsoring the event and marketing your company, by making a donation and receiving a charitable tax receipt, by purchasing a table and bringing guests to hear our story. Keynote Speaker Michael Landsberg Media Personality | Mental Health Advocate Michael Landsberg has been a prominent face and voice on the Canadian sports scene since 1984. With his unique style, he quickly became one of this country's most polarizing personalities- perceived by some as forthright and others as arrogant.   In 2009 people began to agree more on Michael after he publicly shared his, then decade long, struggle with severe depression and anxiety. Since then, he has become one of this country's loudest voices- pushing for all Canadians to see mental illness as a sickness, not a weakness. Michael frequently used his platform as producer and host of Off the Record on TSN to change people's opinion of mental illness.   Michael has been an official spokesperson for Bell Let's Talk Day since that initiative was launched. In 2015 Michael launched his own initiative, a not-for-profit, called SickNotWeak. SickNotWeak is dedicated to changing the way Canadians see mental illness. www.SickNotWeak.com gives a voice to celebrities and everyday folks to share their struggles and their views on mental health issues.
