Description

Join us for Queen's only All-faculty Dance Party this homecoming week!

When was the last time you danced? I mean really danced!? Was it back in 2012 at Alfie's Pub? Well, this time we're doing one better. We've booked Grant Hall, we've booked the band, and we're gonna party like it's 1982!

That's right. Saturday night of Homecoming, the entire Class of '82 will converge on Grant Hall for a Dance Party the likes of which Homecoming has never experienced in the history of the school!

Tickets are only $25 and all proceeds go to support Jack.org (see details below).

The Date: Saturday October 14, 2017
The Time: 9pm until they close us down
The Band: The one and only 20th Century Boys

The Cause: Jack.org

5 years ago, we came together and helped spark a movement to change the youth mental health landscape in Canada. Across faculties, the class of '82 stood in solidarity with our classmate Eric Windeler and his wife Sandra Hanington who lost their son Jack, a Queen's freshman, to suicide. Together we made a commitment to creating a future where no young person would suffer in silence and no other family would experience a loss like theirs. We raised over $125,000 to launch Jack.org at Queen's University and start the organization's national expansion.

Today, Jack.org is a national charity with a staff of 17, supporting 2,500 student leaders all over Canada. The movement that started at Queen's is now on 116 campuses from coast to coast to coast. Jack.org will reach over 100,000 young people this year alone, engaging them in mental health conversations that change and save lives. Their growth has been explosive and shows no signs of stopping anytime soon.

The Class of '82 was there at the very beginning. Now, 5 years later, we're coming together again to celebrate and help make the next phase of Jack.org's growth possible.
