New Path’s Not Just Jazz Event Raises over $40,000 In Support of Children’s Mental Health

Barrie, Ontario, June 8th, 2012

Magic, Mirth and Music were in full swing at Barrie’s South Shore Community Centre last Friday June 1st as the New Path Foundation held it’s 11th annual signature Not Just Jazz fundraising event to a packed house of over 200 guests and supporters.  From culinary delights, refreshments, music, silent auction and a few surprises, guests were treated to a night of community with Master of Ceremony Rock 95’s Ozz (pictured along with a special friend) in support of the tremendous work that New Path Youth and Family Services does each and every day for children, youth and their families in 7-locations throughout Simcoe County.  A highlight of the evening was a challenge event to match the generous donation of $3000.00 from Dr. John Adkins and David Slocum; this was met and exceeded in less than half and hour with a total of $7,425.00 coming from our guests.

New Path Foundation would like to thank our wonderful event committee, generous sponsors, silent auction and food donors along with our wonderful guests for helping to make this year’s event a huge success!  Plans for next year’s event are already underway with the hope of an even bigger night of fun, celebration, friendship and fundraising.  To help us in 2013 as a sponsor, donor or event planning partner, please contact James Thomson at 705-733-2654 Ext. 2047 or
