RISE Awards Event Set-Up

3-3 hours
In 2003, the Edmonton Mennonite Centre for Newcomers began the tradition of celebrating outstanding accomplishments of newcomers, immigrants, individuals and local organizations for their commendable service to building strong communities through social, cultural, and economic development. Newcomers form the foundation to support a stronger community. The RISE Awards aims to recognize newcomers, businesses, employers, and social serving organizations who demonstrate outstanding commitments to creating a more welcoming and inclusive community for all. 

Today, this tradition continues and on the evening of October 10th, 2019, we will celebrate these achievements at the 16th Annual RISE Awards Gala. 

We are looking for a number of volunteers to help us set up this event on October 10th, 2019.
