$17,000 raised from Breakfast with the Mayor

This year's Breakfast with the Mayor event brought in a lot of money for a very worthwhile cause.

The theme for the event this year was "Understanding Complexities of Family Violence" something guest speaker Namrata Gill knows a lot about in 18 years with Edmonton Police Services.

In total $17,000 was raised for Leduc and District Victim Services along with the Riseup Society which both works directly with victims of family violence.

Thanks to events like this the city says they are dedicated to keeping the region safe through awareness and community support.  (JSL/THE ONE NEWS)
