On behalf of the Luso Canadian Charitable Society’s Board of Directors, the 2019 Gala Committee and our wonderful program participants, thank you to everyone who contributed to the success of our 13th Annual Gala Dinner!

With your support, we raised more than $310,000 for Luso’s quality programs and services for individuals with special needs and their families. As Luso does not receive ongoing government funding, we rely heavily on the generosity of our sponsors, community organizations and individuals to sustain our Support Centres year after year through organized fundraisers such as our Gala.

Thank you for considering our charity with such warmth and kindness. It is truly remarkable to see how generous contributions such as yours change the lives of individuals with developmental and/or physical disabilities. Your support allows us to offer the accessible, coordinated and sustainable services these individuals deserve.

We look forward to seeing you again next year!
