Friday March 24 was a day of great music and inspiring conversation at Waypoint thanks to the brilliance and creativity of Séan McCann. Formerly of east coast band Great Big Sea, McCann is a survivor of addiction and abuse, a Bell Let's Talk ambassador and this year's featured guest at our 4th Annual Fundraising Dinner. 

McCann, who uses music as therapy, shared his moving story of surviving abuse and becoming sober with the sold-out crowd of 190 guests. "Music is strong medicine," he said. "And it was an honour for me to help the good people at Waypoint with my truth and my songs."

In addition to his amazing performance at the fundraising dinner, Séan returned the next morning to play not only one, but two concerts for Waypoint patients who were thrilled to have the opportunity to hear his story.

The event raised nearly $65,000 in support of people faced with mental illness and addiction, $7,000 more than last year's proceeds thanks to our generous sponsors, silent auction partners and guests.

The funds raised will directly impact mental health care across the region. Waypoint's fundraising efforts improve patient treatment and care by helping to fund new research, renovate aging buildings, develop community awareness and training programs and purchase hospital equipment and technology. 

Waypoint would like to express our sincere appreciation to TD Bank Group, our sponsors and all those involved in making our 4th Annual fundraising dinner a resounding success.
