About Dan’s Legacy
The Dan’s Legacy Foundation (Dan’s Legacy) was founded in memory of a promising and vibrant young man who fell victim to a sexual predator. As is common with victims of abuse, he turned to drugs to suppress the psychological pain of the experience. Stints in rehab only provided a partial solution. What was needed was counselling support to uncover the root of his addiction. Tragically, Dan relapsed and died from an overdose. He was nineteen years old.
Dan’s Legacy provides therapeutic counselling and life-skills intervention programs to youth battling mental health and addictions issues resulting from childhood trauma and abuse. In the past three years Dan’s Legacy has helped over 150 youth meet their educational, housing and life-goals.
I have a pair of tickets to give away to the Chefs’ Charity Dinner to support this worthy cause.
Since I am unable to attend the event, I’d love the winner to be my social reporter for the night. In exchange for two tickets, and to amplify the message, the winner will be asked to post about the event live on their platform of choice (Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, minimum 1 post). If they do not have their own social media, please provide Miss604 with 1 image and a brief recap so we can tell everyone about it!
