Silent Night in October

Our Special Guest

SMF is very honored to have the legendary Academy Award Winner Dr. Colin Chilvers (Colin Chilvers – Wikipedia) to be our special guest for this event. Dr. Chilvers is a longtime friend of Dr. Poling Bork and a supporter for her effort in making the world a better place for those impacted by selective mutism. He will bring his Oscar along and provide the attendees a chance to hold the Oscar for the “photo-shoots”!


This special semi-formal event includes a full dinner, cash bar, live music performed by Emily Yochim. Our silent theme is to promote understanding of selective mutism, which will include showcasing silent movie clips, practicing silent moments where everyone tries to communicate without speech, and of course the silent auction! Come meet Dr. Chilvers and see his Oscar! Come to have a great time and help us support families impacted by selective mutism!


Please join us to kick start the Selective Mutism Awareness month in October and join us in our first fund raising dinner on October 5th 2022!


Reception opens at 6pm with a cash bar available. Bidding for the silent auction starts at 6:30. Dinner at 7 pm.


Club Roma, 125 Vansickle Road, St. Catharines, Ontario, L2S 3W4


The cost to attend this special event is USD$80 inclusive
