Waterloo Region Family Network’s annual signature fundraising event, Evening of Elegance, is a chance for our community of supporters to come together for a social evening of connection, dining and merriment. Each year, WRFN family stories and experiences are shared, dedicated volunteers are honoured, and guests have participated in silent auctions and raffles.
In 2022, WRFN hosted its seventh annual Evening of Elegance event, its first in-person event since 2019. While not the typical format, in 2021, a virtual event was held where families and supporters had the opportunity to try a virtual cooking class with The Culinary Studio!
Our event in 2023 marked our return to a mix and mingle event without any Covid-19 restrictions. We celebrated with a live performance from the musical trio, Tre Gatte, a special presentation from Chantal Huinink, and an interactive photobooth for guests.

This award was named in memory of Matthew MacGregor, an exceptional young man in our community who passed in March 2020. Learn more about Matthew’s story, our award and past recipients.
