CIPH Members Exercise Their Voices in Support of Habitat for Humanity

On Tuesday March 20th the industry came together to celebrate its ongoing support for Habitat for Humanity. It was a night to remember as we ate, drank, and for the first time, sang.


At our bi-annual CIPH Gala in Support of Habitat for Humanity nearly 300 guests enjoyed a delightful evening among industry peers at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, celebrating another successful campaign in support of a charity that is truly changing communities from coast to coast.


After enjoyable networking, our formal program began with special recognition for a dedicated CIPH member. Bob Lagasse of Wolseley truly went above and beyond in the last campaign, securing product and delivery for a home build in Iqaluit, Nunavut. For his efforts he was presented a special award from CIPH Charity committee Chairs Garth Wallin and Brent Cornelisen. This recognition was not just a tribute to Bob, but a reminder that one person can truly make a difference. 


This year’s entertainment was a unique group called Choir, Choir, Choir. Their special skill is being able to turn any group into a singing sensation and on this evening it was CIPH’s turn. Familiar faces suddenly became rock stars as they belted out well known songs as one.


All in all it was a very successful night. Not only were CIPH members able to connect outside a traditional business setting but they were reminded of the important role Habitat plays in Canada and how ongoing support from members, which is close to $14,000,000 and growing, provides a stable foundation on which more families can experience the safety and security that affordable home ownership provides. 




Events like these always fly by so fast but CIPH's commitment to supporting Habitat for Humanity is still so meaningful after more than 20 years of partnership. 


Thanks to the support of CIPH members,  guests, our generous auction donors and winning auction participants, the event will make a significant contribution as we kick off our 2018/19 campaign.
