More details

As L’Arche Saint John seeks to grow its inclusive mission in support of adults with intellectual disabilities, we invite you to join us.

This very special evening will feature an opportunity to hear more about Ms. Cavanagh's journey.

Charlie Cavanagh is a former Team Canada athlete and world-champion boxer who faced her toughest fight outside the ring. Charlie’s remarkable story of determination and victory, punctuated by suffering and loss, serves as an inspiration. Through sharing her personal battle with eating disorders, she is a passionate advocate for recovery and awareness.

Our emcee for the evening is Julia Wright. Julia is a Saint John writer, broadcaster and photographer. She's been the host of CBC Information Morning in Saint John on CBC Radio One since 2019, and with the public broadcaster since 2016. Her work frequently celebrates unsung heroes, everyday people, and others making positive change in our community. 

Well-known local artist Lana Langille will be creating a live painting during the evening to be put up for auction at the gala dinner.

A silent auction will be featured. 

An annual gala event in support of L’Arche Saint John, Building Community attracts a sold-out audience of more than 400 people from the business, government and non-profit communities in the region and across New Brunswick. 

We hope you’ll join us for another spectacular evening.
