NIAGARA REGION’S INAUGURAL CHIEF’S GALA IN HONOUR OF POLICE CHIEF JEFF MCGUIRE
September 17, 2016 @ 6:00 pm
On Saturday, September 17, 2016, ProAction Cops & Kids (ProAction) and Victim Services Niagara (VSN) hosted Niagara Region’s Inaugural Chief’s Gala in honour of Chief Jeff McGuire and the Niagara police officers who keep our kids and communities safe. This event proved to be a huge success welcoming 300 guests from across the Region to the Crowne Plaza’s Grand Ballroom. Community leaders including Hamilton’s newly appointed Chief of Police Eric Girt, Senior police officers, business leaders, local politicians, educators, community agencies and invested community members showed their support by attending this event and learning more about the valuable partnerships between Niagara Regional Police Service (NRPS), ProAction and VSN.
Gala guests enjoyed an evening of fine dining, wine tasting and entertainment from talented musicians. Messages shared by Chief McGuire, ProAction and VSN reinforced the value and impact of a community that works together towards common goals. Through our collaborative efforts NRPS, ProAction and VSN are able to impact and better the lives of children and families across the region by providing valuable youth programs that build stronger relationships between cops, kids and their communities and services that provide valuable support and resources to families in times of crime and tragedy.
The evening was a great success raising close to $100,000 to support police-led programs for at-risk youth and vulnerable victims. Thank you for your contribution and for helping to build a stronger, healthier and safer Niagara Region. Building on our success, we hope you will consider joining us again at the Crowne Plaza on Saturday September 16, 2017 for the 2nd Annual Chief’s Gala.
