This year's We're On The Way Fundraiser was a complete success! Thank you to everyone who made this wonderful night happen. Heather and her fundraising committee sure know how to throw a great party!
Our 5th annual event was held on Saturday, November 4th, 2017 and we raised OVER
All funds raised from this event will be used to purchase supplies and equipment to provide unique program experiences for the children and youth of varied abilities at Nova's Ark!
We could not have done it without the great generosity of our guests and donors! This sold out night involved a delicious dinner, silent auction, dancing and a draw for some unbelievable prizes! Click below to see the list of our incredible donors who helped support Nova's Ark!
We had our fingers (and toes!) crossed for a sunny day with no rain for our 7th Annual Friendship Walk, and Saturday, June 17 arrived with just that! Along with the good weather, we had an amazing turnout of wonderful people all gathered to enjoy a day of family fun in support of Nova's Ark. To each and every one of you who gave pledges and walked with us – you have truly made a difference!
For the 2nd year in a row, our walker with the most pledges was Trey B. who won a 3 hr Saturday visit at Nova's Ark for 10 people. Congratulations Trey!

We are overwhelmed with the support from our community, and so grateful to each and every person who has contributed to the success of this fundraiser in whatever way they felt possible. Thank you!
Special thanks to Celina Caesar-Chavannes (MP-Whitby), Town of Whitby Mayor, Don Mitchell, and Town of Whitby Council members, Derrick Gleed and Rhonda Mulcahy, who came out to share in this lovely, event filled day. Your support means so much to us!
As always, we`re delighted to enjoy the music of Workin’ Dawgs. These talented musicians have performed at our Walk each year...thank you so much.
And, a big thank you to the owners/staff of Starr Burger, who also join us every year to provide our guests with a delicious BBQ served with a great big smile!
Of course we can't forget the AMAZING Nova’s Ark Volunteer Force… the tremendous adult and youth volunteers who set-up/tore down, answered questions, shared stories, handled registrations, worked with the animals, baked goods, and ran the sales and craft tables.
