Hope for Homes


Friday, September 22, 2023

Join us for an evening of laughter, connection and coming together to support people struggling with homelessness and housing instability in north Durham.

This year, Hope for Homes has a theme – The Red Affair! Red is the symbol of our heart and care in working to support those who are living with homelessness and housing instability in the communities of north Durham. All attendees are encouraged to show their support during the event by wearing something red. So, break out your favourite red shirt, dress, tie or red shoes to show your support and have some fun!

Dan Pollard from 105.5 Hits FM will take us through the evening’s festivities which include dinner and a silent auction with a special address by Dan Carter, Mayor of Oshawa who will share his personal decades-long struggle with addiction and homelessness.

Tickets are $125 each and a tax receipt for $60 will be issued for each ticket purchased. Or why not purchase a whole table and bring your friends! Tables are $900 (eight seats) with a $380 tax receipt to the purchaser.



Dan Pollard is a native of Uxbridge, not only produces and hosts the Afternoon Drive on 105.5 Hits FM but is the General Manager of the station. Dan has been heard and seen on CBC radio and television, TSN, Sportsnet, Q-107, CFRB, 99.9, AM640 and the FAN 590.
