"We rise by lifting others up"
Founded in 2013, Smith School of Business' MBA Charity Gala is a student-run initiative that aims to make a difference within the Kingston community by supporting a local charity or philanthropic cause.
The event seeks to bring those from within and outside of Kingston together for a night filled with fun, entertainment, and celebration. To date, students have raised over $90,000 for a diverse range of organizations including the H’art Centre, Elizabeth Fry Society, Almost Home, Right To Play, St. Vincent de Paul Society of Kingston and Habitat for humanity.
This year we are proud to partner with the Home Base Housing that works to develop and manages affordable housing, emergency shelters and support services to meet the needs of youth, adults and families at risk of homelessness in the Kingston area.
