Magic, Mirth and Music were in full swing at Bear Creek Golf Club on Friday September 20th as the New Path Foundation held its 12th annual signature Not Just Jazz fundraising event to over 150 guests and supporters.  From culinary delights, refreshments, music, buskers, silent auction and a few surprises, guests were treated to a night of community 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 Simcoe County.  A highlight of the evening was a challenge event to match the generous donation of $5000.00 from a group calling themselves the “5 for 5” led by Dr. John Adkins and David Slocum; in total, $7,225.00 was generously raised through this initiative helping to bring the collective total to just over $33,000.00

New Path Foundation would like to thank our wonderful event committee, generous sponsors – especially presenting sponsor The Madison Group of RBC Dominion Securities, 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 2014 as a sponsor, donor or event planning partner, please contact James Thomson at 705-733-2654 Ext. 2047 or
