On Monday, November 4, 2013, Brooklin Home Hardware held a “Ladies Night” evening in support of Nova’s Ark. Over 100 women attended this wonderful evening which featured special price shopping, holiday decorating demonstrations and delicious food and refreshment. Lots of laughter and lots of support for Nova’s Ark!
A huge thank you to Brooklin Home Hardware for hosting this event and for their donation of $1,010.00 to our unique charity. We look forward to continued partnerships in our local community.
On Saturday November 2, 2013, Heather Hawco-Gray and her incredible team of organizers and volunteers hosted the very first Nova’s Ark We’re on the Way Fundraiser at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Whitby. This very successful event included a dinner, dance and silent auction. A SOLD OUT crowd of one hundred and thirty-five guests enjoyed a fabulous and memorable evening!
With the generous donations of those who attended and our corporate sponsors, a total of $11,862.49 was raised! Every penny of this will go directly to enhance our inclusionary programs at Nova’s Ark. Our special friends will benefit by an increased exposure in the following areas:
- physical activity, conditioning, flexibility and mobility
- sharpen fine motor skills
- recreational, leisure and socialization
- life skills and social skills
- sensory and balance
Nova’s Ark, our specials friends, and their families thank the organizers, attendees and volunteers of this event from the bottom of our ♥ hearts ♥.

On this cold, damp, windy day, 55 exuberant youth volunteers arrived for our traditional Leaf Day! Our huge trees are marvelous to enjoy in the summertime, but they certainly drop a lot of leaves come fall. Our volunteers were able to work as a team to gather all these leaves and transfer them in our own Nova’s Ark way into the forest for composting.
We couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you for your huge smiles, your amazing energy and your continued dedication to our facility.
Nova’s Ark is now ready for winter. Let it snow!
