The Dreamcatcher Charitable Foundation will celebrate its Tenth Annual Gala this year.

Over the past decade the Foundation has dedicated itself to providing resources to First Nations all across Canada, providing grants and assistance to individuals and communities in four funding sectors: Arts and Culture, Health, Sports and Recreation, and Education.

The event will be held on Thursday, October 23rd, 2014 at the Hamilton Convention Centre by Carmens’ in Hamilton, Ontario.

“Dreamcatcher sent me to the Canadian Country Music Awards last year and it wouldn’t have been possible without them so a huge thank you to them,” said Genevieve Fisher, funding recipient and rising country music star

This year as every year, Dreamcatcher Awards will be presented to five dedicated and most-deserving individuals who have made a positive impact in communities.
