The Canadian Helen Keller Centre honours York University
On April 12th, 2016 the Canadian Helen Keller Centre honoured York University for their efforts to make their facilities more accessible for the hearing and visually impaired. The luncheon took place at The Fairmont Royal York’s Concert Hall, and was beautifully decorated, showcasing daffodils as the centerpiece of each table.
Attendees participated in a raffle which helped raise funds for the The Canadian Foundation for Physical Disabled Persons (CFPDP), and received incredible prizes for their generous donations. With over 240 people in attendance the event was an opportunity for attendees to socialize and reminisce on past events.
Guest speaker Laura Dottori-Attanasio gave a heartwarming speech on the importance of equality amoung the hearing and visually impaired that had an impact on each individual in attendance. This luncheon was a great way for the community to come together to appreciate the efforts made by York University.
