Poor Boy’s Luncheon is the Largest Annual Fundraiser for corporate sponsor / donations to fund multiple programs offered by Wilmot Family Resource Centre. It has been running since 1994 and is held annually on the 4th Thursday of September. At the event, members of the community can have a hot meal, visit with the community, and enjoy some live music. The funds raised by our Poor Boy’s Luncheon go to support our programming and services for people in Wilmot and Southern Wellesley Townships.
