Leading by example in our community
To continue to do the work that we do, it is imperative that we connect with our community, raise funds and re-invest them back into our programs and services throughout the Maritime provinces.
This sixth annual event will bring together approximately 400 business and community leaders for a morning of networking, entertainment and education, all in support of the work that The Salvation Army is doing right here in the Maritimes.
Keynote Speaker: Paul Tingley
Sailing since he was 10 years old, Paul Tingley was born to be on the water. After a skiing accident, at age 24, left him paralyzed from the waist down, Paul challenged himself to continue sailing. His work ethic, competitive spirit, and passion for the sport never wavered. A year later, Paul would return to water and begin racing competitively.
Paul’s sailing career has taken him around the world. In the 2010 World Championships, he achieved a gold medal finish competing against disabled and able-bodied athletes. His athleticism and skill was recognized on the Paralympic world stage when he received a bronze medal in Sydney (2000), and gold in Beijing (2004).
His most recent career highlights include achieving a bronze medal finish in the Rio Paralympics (2016), and placing 1st in the 2016 Miami World Cup.
Paul’s career is a testament to what we can do when we dedicate our heart, mind, and body to achieving our goals.
Emcee: Steve Murphy
Originally from Saint John, N.B., Murphy has been a fixture of news broadcasting in the Maritimes for a more than three decades. After beginning his career in radio, he has worked on-air at CTV Atlantic since 1986, first as the host of Live at 5 before moving to anchor the newsdesk in 1993.
He has chaired the Christmas Daddies Fundraising Association for 16 years, in addition to hosting the Christmas Daddies annual telethon for an incredible 31 years.
