Feed Nova Scotia

$5 from each “EFC Member Admission” will be donated to Feed Nova Scotia to help those less fortunate. If you would like to make an additional donation to Feed Nova Scotia, you can do so directly on the registration page.

Silent Auction

In the true spirit of the season, members are invited to bring in a donation for our silent auction, with all proceeds going to Feed Nova Scotia. Items such as electronics, small appliances, and sporting goods are always popular (wine and spirits too, of course!) Be creative and let’s raise much-needed funds for families in need this holiday season!

YPN Mixer

YPN members are invited to join us for a pre-reception mixer at 4 p.m. Atlantic Time. Carol McGlogan, EFC President and CEO, will also be on hand for networking and mingling so be sure to introduce yourself!

Chair Exchanges

The Atlantic Region Executive Committee and the YPN Atlantic Committee are both welcoming new chairs for 2024! Join us during the reception as we pass the gavel and welcome our incoming chairs and toast our past chairs for their dedication and commitment to EFC and YPN!
