Coldest Night of the Year 2017 was an amazing show of support for those who are struggling in our community, with over 200 walkers braving the elements. Okay, let's be honest, it was a balmy night in Port Hope, so we resorted to calling it the Coldest Night of the Week. The brave ones were the 64 walkers who headed into the night in Yellowknife, where temperatures hit -24!
Thanks to everyone who played a part in Port Hope exceeding our goal--and pushing the national campaign over its goal of $4 million, in support of those who are homeless, hungry and hurting. Be sure to mark February 24 for next year's Coldest Night.
Special thanks go out to local restaurants who provided the chili-fest that ended the night,
as well as other business sponsors:
Basil's Market & Deli
The Mill Restaurant & Pub
Tim Horton's Port Hope
Davis Independant Grocer
Lauria Auto Group
