Join host Scott Thompson of the Kids in the Hall and musical guest Lorraine Segato of The Parachute Club
Progress Place Gala – A fundraiser in support of Warm Line
Actor/comedian Scott Thompson, member of The Kids in the Hall and inductee to Canada’s Walk of Fame, is hosting the Progress Place Gala to help celebrate 30 years of helping people living with mental illness. Scott will be fresh from his North American tour with the Kids in the Hall so be ready for anything.
Lorraine Segato, co-founder and lead singer of iconic polyrhythmic 80s pop band, The Parachute Club, has been busy releasing a new album, entitled Invincible Decency, launching a gospel remix of Rise Up called Rize Time and collaborating on a documentary called Lowdown Tracks that celebrates music and survival with those who live on the outside.
Join us as we celebrate 30 years and raise funds to expand the much needed Warm Line peer support program. Featuring a night of good food, drink and 80s entertainment, this event presents a unique and fun opportunity to join Scott and Lorraine to show your support for Progress Place and the work being done to improve the lives of people living with mental illness.
