Thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you again next year!  Save the date - Sunday, September 24th 2023!

The Great Escape returned to an in-person Fall Fair Event in 2022 and raised an estimated record-breaking $119,710. This year the generosity of our community donors and supporters has been felt here at The Elliott Community.

On Saturday, September 10, 2022, the community gathered at The Elliott Community for a safe outdoor event. This year’s event – marked the fifteenth continuous year in support of The Elliott Community. It was an action-packed afternoon with live entertainment, a silent auction, a petting zoo, pony rides, and great BBQ foods. Over 200 guests attended the event!

"We are so thankful to our community, generous donors, sponsors, volunteers, and vendors, who made this day incredibly special for our residents and families. It has been a long two years, and it was amazing to see our community come together to help make the event special for everyone" says Michelle Karker, CEO at The Elliott Community.

The Elliott Community would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Scott Pollard & Suzannah Patmios, and Ryan & Stacey Pollard for your generous support, and to Bill & Colleen Koornstra. This event would not have been possible without their support.

Proceeds raised through the event will go to The Butterfly Project and support high-quality and responsive recreation therapy programs designed to serve the complex mental health needs and well-being of our seniors.
