Regina Police Service's 125th Anniversary Gala
in partnership with United Way Regina
Saturday, October 14th, 2017
Queensbury Convention Centre at EVRAZ Place
Cocktails: 5:00 P.M.
Dinner: 6:00 P.M.
Like United Way Regina, the Regina Police Service strives to improve
our community as a place where everyone lives well, together.
We have long known that events that manifest as crime often have their roots in social issues
like poverty, unemployment and marginalization; health issues such as addictions or mental wellness;
or other needs like secure housing and regular school attendance. We recognize that there is no single agency,
government ministry or organization that can unilaterally alleviate the complex needs present in our society.
We have aligned our organizational Mission, Vision and Values to acknowledge the need to work together,
in a compassionate and respectful way, to build a better, safer community for all.
In celebration of Regina Police Service's 125 years of community service, proceeds for this event
directly support United Way Regina initiatives; strengthening our community.
Together,we are improving lives locally.
Poverty is complex and impacts people in different ways and to different degrees.
Too often, people in our very own community are forced to make difficult choices - like paying rent or putting food on the table.
These daily stresses add up and take a toll on the entirt family and ultimately the wellbeing of our entire community.
We invite you and/or your team to particpate in our first ever offering of this half-day Poverty Simulation
as a voluneer to assist in running this event or a particpant making those difficult choices.
A game about the powerful role of relationships on EARLY BRAIN DEVELOPMENT
The Brain Architecture Game is a tabletop game experience that builds understanding of the powerful role of experiences on early brain development – what promotes it, what derails it, with what consequences for our community.
Participants gain a memorable, compelling perspective on the lifelong impact of early childhood experiences.
The game is a 75-90 minute experience optimized for groups of 4-6 people per table. It can be played in small workshops, conferences, and large events, with as few as 15, or as many as 80 participants.
Contact Wendy Ottenson for more information or to book your team in for an experience soon.
The Poverty Simulation is an interactive tool that emulates what it would be like
to LIVE ONE MONTH IN POVERTY IN SASKATCHEWAN.
Participants are given a backstory, a job, and a bank account. Their task – to see if they can last a month on a low and fixed income. Facilitators pose different questions and challenges for the participants to answer. The questions are based on real life scenarios right here in Regina. The simulation is a 60 minute experience and can be played in small workshops, conferences, and large events with as few a 15 participants.
