Your Invitation to Attend Walk With the Wind

We welcome you to be together again on September 24, 2022.

Since March 2020 when the pandemic disrupted lives, we have witnessed acts of community and solidarity as we have faced the pandemic and as the truth of thousands of graves on the sites of formal residential schools were confirmed for the world to witness. The need to commit to truth and reconciliation has never been greater.

It is with gratitude to the very talented co-chairs, committee volunteers and gracious cultural advisors, with whom we are privileged to work, that I invite you to join us to Walk with the Wind–the next step of our reconciliation journey.

After water, fire, earth, this fourth element, wind, cannot be seen, but its power is felt, like acts of kindness. We are thrilled to welcome acclaimed playwright Curtis Peeteetuce as artistic director for this inspiring event.

Like seeds carried by the wind, we share the experience of reconciliation through the gala, so it can spread and grow. We are committed to continuing to walk together, with our many corporate partners and supporters, to build on its growth and shift in our community: the desire to learn, to be bold, and to make systemic change.

By embracing the collective powerful winds together, we will continue this vital work, towards a vibrant future where everyone belongs.

On behalf of our event co-chairs Tracy Muggli and Lisa Mooney and the committee, we invite you to join us.

Saskatoon Community Foundation

In 2017 the Board of Directors committed $400,000 over four years for projects that address the 94 Calls to Action in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission report. The funds raised through the Cultural Gala have been a major part of this commitment.

In the last three years over $530,000 has already been granted to projects in our community! These grants promote Indigenous leadership and initiate partnerships among Indigenous and non-Indigenous organizations.

The 2017, 2018, and 2019 Nutrien Saskatoon Community Foundation Cultural Galas have explored the elements of water, fire, and earth, building stronger relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people – all in support of SCF’s Community Fund for Reconciliation Granting Program.

The 2019 Nutrien Saskatoon Community Foundation Gala could not happened without our sponsors and partners. With a shared vision of making Saskatoon the best city in which to live, we are grateful for their generous support.
