We will be celebrating the generous contributions and community commitment of The Morris and Beverly Baker Foundation on September 27, 2017
On September 27, 2017, with Caesars Windsor as our Presenting Sponsor, and SHO Art Spirit & Performance as the Artistic Coordinator, Windsor Endowment for the Arts will recognize the extraordinary contributions and community commitment The Morris and Beverly Baker Foundation have made through their lifelong commitment to cultural philanthropy in Windsor-Essex.
The Baker Legacy – a Community Gathers to Celebrate Tribute Dinner is far more than a gala dinner. The event brings together twelve (12) local organizations, institutions and agencies in recognition of Mrs. Baker’s generous philanthropic endeavours and the Baker Foundation’s altruism to each of their causes. This alone is a milestone as it is the first time that these organizations have jointly embraced community enrichment by partnering to stage this auspicious occasion.
WEA’s community partners are: Windsor Regional Hospital, University of Windsor, St. Clair College, Windsor Symphony Orchestra, Art Gallery of Windsor, Windsor Jewish Community Centre, Willistead Manor, STAG/Windsor Port Authority, House of Sophrosyne, Windsor Youth Centre, Amhertsburg Freedom Museum and Windsor Endowment for the Arts/Changing the Odds: Community Transformation Through the Arts.
The Tribute Dinner will redefine extraordinary and celebrate Mrs. Baker and the Baker Foundation through a myriad of creative approaches that each tell their story of gratitude weaving a colourful tapestry of storytelling, experiences and community impact as a result of the Baker Foundation’s investment in healthcare, education, arts and culture in this region.
Plan to join us, as a Community, to celebrate and express gratitude to the Baker Foundation for their inspiring visionary support that further contributes to the regional’s creativity and prosperity.
