This year the Canadian Helen Keller Centre Award Luncheon took place April 25th, at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel. For this 9th annual award ceremony, CHKC, in conjunction with the Canadian Foundation for Physically Disabled Persons (CFPDP), honoured the CNIB (Canadian National Institute for the Blind) for its outstanding achievements and contributions to the disability of deaf-blindness, and raising much needed funds to operate the centre.
Mr Larry Corke (Awards Chair, CHKC) and Cindy Accardi (Executive Director, Rotary Cheschire Homes and CHKC) presented the 2013 Canadian Helen Keller Award to John Rafferty CEO & President of CNIB and this included a special plaque made in Braille…do you know how hard it was to find a supplier who does awards in Braille?
The award was a great opportunity to network and mingle as 250 guests came to honour the award recipients and to listen to the wise words of Premiere of Ontario Kathleen Wynne and the audience enjoyed her update on the provinces involvement in this community.
The luncheon was paced by awarding London Olympic Paralympics athletes Patrick Anderson (wheelchair Basketball), David Durepos (Wheelchair Basketball), Jared Funk (Wheelchair Rugby), Virginia McLachla (Athletics), Nathan Stein (Swimming) and Michelle Stilwell (Wheelchair Race) with the King Clancy Award.
For this occasion the national anthem was wonderfully sung by Major Beverly Ivany.
Master of Ceremony Rob Snoek was our host for the day as a former Paralympics world champion and president of the CFPDP.
