The CNOY  is now LIVE!  Create a team and recruit team members now! And what an awesome way to give this Christmas…make a donation on behalf of a family member or friend.

The goal for The Lighthouse is $100,000! Let’s do this Orillia!


This year we’re wearing yellow! With a pom-pom, a cool blue stripe and (wait for it), head-turning Scotchbrite reflective thread woven right into it that will make us all shine even brighter on February 25th.
