Pathways SMIS members and friends can look forward to celebrating our society at our annual Circle of Strength fundraiser on Saturday, May 4, 2024. We are pleased to welcome you back to the Holiday Inn and Suites, 700 Old Lillooet Road in North Vancouver for a delicious meal, great company and Inspirational speakers from our community who will share their personal stories to help us better understand mental illness.

Host a table

Circle of Strength is an opportunity for you to host a table of eight to ten people. Hosting a table plays a key role at this important fundraising event. Contact for more information.

Your role as a host is to extend invitations to influencers within your community who can give generously or wish to gain a deeper understanding of the stigma and challenges around mental illness. We provide written invitations and emails for you to send to your business contacts, friends and family.

Help raise awareness and funds

Previously, the Circle of Strength luncheon has been transformational as we continue to raise awareness for mental illness and funds to expand our services to those who need them.

Circle of Strength has been Pathways SMIS’s primary fundraiser for 14 years, raising between $35,000 – $50,000. These funds have made possible the provision of our Family-to-Family Course and our weekly support groups, all at no cost, to those who use and benefit from these services, helping to transform the lives of caregivers of mentally ill loved ones.
