TORONTO (PRWEB) January 24, 2021
The Influencers’ of Impact and Change Luncheon Celebration hosted by Ted Reigner from Legacy Plus is set to happen on February 2, 2021. Due to the precautionary measures taken in wake of the pandemic, the celebration will be via Zoom. The event has proven to be very successful since its beginning in Edmonton in 2018. Leaders from more than 20 different organizations attended the event, as it is hosted three times per year. Every event has a sponsor to support the event, and this year The Influencers’ of Impact and Change Luncheon Celebration is being sponsored by Maryanne McMullen.
The event is designed to show appreciation for each leader, and its main purpose is to allow community leaders to hang out with fellow leaders, be appreciated, and celebrated, as well as have the opportunity to connect with others. Legacy Plus is an organization that is invested in philanthropy and creates opportunities for passionate people to connect, collaborate, contribute, and celebrate. This is something that adds to the legacy of passion impact projects, events, and experiences. It claims to be a partnership where people work together to support each other in a shared community.
The key is always generosity, to give what one has freely to others so that everyone has a chance to do their best work by being in service of others. All of their passion projects have different types of partners. Their Front Line Partners are the groups working directly with their vulnerable citizens, they know what the need is, and they know what is needed to meet that particular need.
The Resource Partners are individuals and companies that have a passion to meet this need and provide finances, connections, mentorship, and or any other resources that might be needed. On the other hand, a Legacy Builder Team is a group of like-minded people who share the passion to meet this need and do the work to complete the project. Lastly, the Recipients are the people that receive the benefit of the project such as those experiencing homelessness and abusive situations. The management at Legacy Plus believes in celebrating the hard work of all the people who work hard to serve those with vulnerabilities by putting in their time, efforts, and resources.
The Influencers’ of Impact and Change Luncheon Celebration is a product of the belief in celebration, as every year they bring together executive directors and leaders of groups working with the vulnerable people to connect with each other, share, and celebrate their victories and effort. In addition to this, Legacy Plus also hosts one workshop a year. Attendees in Edmonton include leaders from Boyle Street Community Services and Ventures, Bissell Centre, WIN House shelters, WINGS of Providence shelters, Assault Centre, Adaptabilities, Little Warriors, Women’s Council for Shelters, Pride, etc.
