News Release - September 28th 2012
Action Housing's 8th Annual Benefit
Cocktail: A Memorable Evening

 


  

OTTAWA – Over one hundred leaders, including area politicians and key members of the business community gathered on September 27th 2012 at the Jean Piggot Room at the Ottawa City Hall for the 8th Annual Action Housing Cocktail Benefit, an event organized by Action Housing. The primary objective of this major event is to raise funds for programs aimed at assisting the less fortunate.
 
Almost $19,000 was raised last night thanks to the generosity of a number of sponsors and the community at large”, said Denis Losier, President of Action Housing. He added, “An organization like ours wouldn’t be able to reach its goals if it wasn’t for the support of the community. The annual cocktail benefit is an excellent opportunity to increase the awareness of the community, government and the media about the need to assist lower-income individuals and families to find adequate and safe housing."
 
 

The evening’s Honorary President, Mr. Michel Bilodeau, Vice President of Public Governance International, and former head of several public health agencies, stated that he was delighted by the evening, which helped, once again, to mobilize the community’s support and energies for a common good.
 
In his speech on the importance of keeping seniors at home as long as possible, he cited the shocking statistic that “if we need 77,000 beds today to meet the demand for elder care, then we will need 235,000 beds in 20 years, if we are not able to develop the necessary services to help seniors stay longer in their homes”.   He emphasized that “the current methods of addressing homelessness are more expensive to the taxpayer than the development of solutions which encourage more persons to have their own home.”
 
At the event, Action Housing also took the opportunity to present two awards, one to an organization and another to an individual, for their unrelenting commitment to help the less fortunate in our area to access affordable housing.
 
This year, the Award of Recognition in Housing - category organization was presented to The Multifaith Housing Initiative, for its Project: Kent House, Somerset Gardens and Blake House. Rosine Kaley, the former Executive Director of Action Housing was the recipient of the Award of Recognition in Housing - category individual.
 

For almost 25 years, Action Housing, a non-profit organization, has come to the assistance of lower income individuals and families in search of safe and adequate housing.
