Catholic Social Services hosted The Big Thank You! event to celebrate our long-standing relationship with the Red Deer Community on Wednesday, August 31. The event was our way of saying thank-you to the city for their overwhelming support for the past 53 years.
Over 800 guests came out for the night’s festivities, enjoying complimentary meals from three local food trucks, and electrifying musical sets from Edmonton recording artist Joshua Sahunta and Red Deer’s St. James' Gate. To end the night, guests participated in a special water lantern ceremony, where colourful lanterns were launched, lighting up Bower Ponds.
CSS Board Member Bill Kenny and Red Deer Mayor Tara Veer were among the many special attendees that made it down for the celebration, joining in on all the excitement from the live entertainment and fun activities that took place throughout the night.
We are humbled by the Red Deer community’s overwhelming support for our Agency over the years, and we hope to continue forging this strong bond with the wonderful people of Red Deer.
