On November 9th, 2016, True Patriot Love will host the 8th Annual Tribute Dinner at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in Toronto. In 2009, the first Toronto Tribute Dinner was hosted in an effort to raise funds for Base and Wing Commanders to help military families within hours of being advised of need. Seven years later, this signature event has raised over $14 million for our military families and veterans from coast-to-coast.
“We are so pleased to be associated with this worthwhile cause that honours the sacrifices of members of the Canadian Armed Forces, veterans and their families in both times of peace and conflict,” stated Nick Walker, President of Bassett & Walker International.
