Better Beginnings Better Futures celebrates 25 years with 14th Annual Dinner and Silent Auction

SUDBURY, Ont.  -  On Friday, February 19, Better Beginnings Better Futures will celebrate its silver anniversary by hosting its 14th Annual Semi Formal Dinner and Silent Auction, with a dance to follow at the Caruso Club.

“Our 25th anniversary is very important to us,” says Carole Dodge, executive director of Better Beginnings Better Futures.

“We are hoping that everyone who has touched base with the organization over the years will help celebrate with us. All staff, community members and family members both past and present are welcome. It is a very exciting time for our organization and we have much to celebrate. Over the past 25 years we have offered services to at least 17, 500 children and their parents through a variety of programs and events.”

All proceeds from the event will go towards funding both the Pre-Teen and S.P.O.T programs. At this time, the two programs offered to the youth ages 9 – 17 in the Donovan and Flour Mill neighbourhoods are not in receipt of annualized funds and completely depend on donations and fundraised dollars to operate.

Tickets for the entire evening are priced at $75, whereas tickets for the dance portion only are available for $15. Tickets can be reserved by contacting the Better Beginnings Better Futures administrative office at 705-671-1941 or by emailing


About Better Beginnings Better Futures

Better Beginnings, Better Futures is one of the most ambitious research projects on the long-term impacts of early childhood development programming ever initiated in Canada.  The Better Beginnings, Better Futures model is designed to prevent young children in low income, high risk neighbourhoods from experiencing poor developmental outcomes, which then require expensive health, education and social services. Results have been proven – the programs have helped lessen violence, vandalism, gang behavior and drug use amongst children and youth.

About the Sudbury Working Group

The Sudbury working-group of The Media Co-op was formed to create independent media in the North, to speak to our issues and outlooks on our communities as well as the world around us. Independent media provides an avenue for people who are wishing to gain critical perspective on the issues that matter most to us, and to give a voice to those people and stories that you won't find in the mainstream media.
