On Saturday, February 20, 2016, over 400 people gathered to walk the streets of Orillia. They gathered for two purposes: to create awareness for the hurting, hungry and homeless, and to raise funds for The Lighthouse Soup Kitchen & Shelter. Due to the passionate and committed community, the Coldest Night of the Year 2016 was a huge success!!
