The Montreal Assault Prevention Centre celebrated its 20th and last Raffle at Casa Del Popolo on the 25th of May. A good crowd help us send off the Raffle in style with entertainment provided by the duo Black Rock (Gord Fisch, Richard Morgan) and the Georgian choir Voisa. With the help of our Board and volunteers we raised $6,705. For more information about the evening and a list of the winners download our Bulletin from this website.

I thought that the workshop was really informative. Now I know what to do if I am being attacked.
I learned the 3 rights, “Safe”, “Strong”, “Free”. I think the one sketch that touched me the most is the one with the uncle (Elsie), aunt (Virginie) and David.
Overall, I thought that the Children Assault Workshop was really helpful and I am really glad that they came to St. John Fischer.
