  • Market Hall 140 Charlotte Street Peterborough, ON, K9H 7E8 Canada (map)

A smaller more intimate theatre with catered food, drink and tons of prizes to make this night a great night out for a great cause.

This year we are aiming the proceeds of this event at YES Shelter and One City. 

 YES, serves youth aged 16-24 and families. We provide emergency shelter, transitional housing, an alternative high school classroom, a food cupboard, and transitional programs.

One City Peterborough is an initiative that is working to make downtown Peterborough a stronger and more welcoming community hub for everyone. The One City Team includes individuals with various barriers to employment who are hired to enhance the downtown streetscape through added cleaning efforts. The second part of the program is full-time outreach workers who assist people downtown with a focus on helping those facing homelessness, social exclusion, and mental health issues. The outreach workers assist by building relationships and providing information on services available locally. 

One City Peterborough is a community partnership between the Downtown Business Improvement Area and Warming Room Community Ministries with the support of the City of Peterborough, United Way of Peterborough & District, Wild Rock Outfitters, Cherney Properties, and the people of Peterborough.
