“We are so thankful to the SNGRDC Community Collaborator event sponsors and event supporters. Their generous contributions have allowed our fall event to grow from a small festival at Our Sustenance to a larger scale event at Chiefswood Park,” said Tabitha Curley, Manager of Communications & Stakeholder Relations at SNGRDC. The SNGRDC Community Collaborator program gives SNGRDC’s business partners an opportunity to engage with the Six Nations Community on an on-going basis while supporting local events and initiatives to help make a meaningful and lasting difference in the community in which they do business with.
