The Edmonton Mennonite Centre for Newcomers and Honorary Chair, Karen Lynch, would like to invite you to the postponed 13th annual RISE Awards

On May 4th, 2016 through careful consideration, the Edmonton Mennonite Centre for Newcomers cancelled the RISE Awards Gala due to the wildfire devastation in Fort McMurray. Northlands had been established as an emergency evacuation centre for up to 2,400 evacuees, and EMCN knew it was unfitting to host a joyous celebration amongst those who lost everything.

We believe we did the right thing by postponing the event to pay our respects to the new displaced evacuees, and also to properly and cheerfully celebrate the outstanding accomplishments of the 2016 Award Recipients at a later date

With that said, we are excited that the time is approaching to give our award recipients the ceremony they deserve. Although on a smaller scale, the energy and enthusiasm that the RISE gala is known for is larger than ever. 

EMCN is proud to announce that tickets to the rescheduled event are FREE for all attendees. There is limited general seating and standing room available, so don't wait to reserve your ticket today!
