Inspiring Hope: Breakfast with Len Rhodes
On May 24, 2017, it was an honour to host Len Rhodes, CEO and president of the Edmonton Eskimos Football Club, at our Kottage Breakfast for an inspirational morning.
He shared his personal connection with us, talking about the impact that family violence had on his family when he was a child, and the limited options available to them at the time, as well as how different his life might have been, had Kids Kottage been available when he and his mother had nowhere else to go.
“When there’s no support,” he said, “There’s no hope.”
The support we found for our cause early that morning certainly gave us many reasons to hope. Thanks to the generosity of those in attendance, we were able to raise $34,000 to help us continue to keep our doors open for Edmonton area children in need of safe shelter during times of crisis at home.
Thank you to our sponsors, our donors, our guests, and to Mr. Len Rhodes for inspiring us and standing as proof that no matter their background, every child can go on to do amazing things and to change the world for the better for those around them.
With the generous support of:
