      EVENT DETAILS
      Still We Rise Gala

      Annual Gala & Fundraiser Celebrating Youth Resilience New Leaf Foundation invites you to attend our 6th annual Still We Rise Gala in support of yoga and mindfulness-based programs for youth in marginalized communities. This year, the theme of our Still We Rise Gala will revolve around the strengths that grow out of the hardships we endure — a theme often explored with young people in our programs. The event will be held at the beautiful Artscape Wychwood Barns in Toronto and will feature inspiring speakers, great music by DJ Money Jane, delicious hors-d'oeuvres, cash bar, a silent auction featuring amazing prizes, and more! How Your Support Makes a Difference New Leaf Foundation is an innovative charitable organization supporting the mental, emotional and physical health of youth in marginalized communities. Our mindfulness-based, trauma-informed model of engagement empowers youth to build emotional resilience and pro-social skills, addressing the effects of toxic stress and positively impacting their own lives, as well as their schools, homes, and neighborhoods. Since 2007, New Leaf has reached approximately 8,000 youth in our long-term programs. Our goal is to raise $80,000 which will contribute to the growth of our frontline programs, as well as the expansion of our newly-launched training for school teachers. About Artscape Wychwood Barns Artscape Wychwood Barns is a century-old streetcar facility, redesigned and transformed into a beautiful event space and community hub. The facility is fully accessible by Ontario Standards.  Limited street parking is available on Christie Street, and there are several parking lots located nearby on St Clair Avenue West. When using public transit to get to the venue, use the 126 Christie bus or the 512 St Clair streetcar. Special thanks to our sponsors
