Fundraising Gala 2023

ICA was very happy to welcome the North Bay Community at Average Joe’s in May 2023 for the first annual “Taste of Africa” Fundraising Gala.

There were many prominent community members there, including long-time ICA supporter John Cutsey and ICA Board Chair Mike Johnson.

A highlight of the evening was the autographed Toronto Raptors jersey donated by Maple Leaf Sport and Entertainment (MLSE) and signed by Pascal Siakam – Toronto raptors power forward. Pascal was born and raised in Douala, Cameroon.

John Cutsey’s enthusiasm for the cause and deep respect for the people of Cameroon was evident and highly moving. John pledged to match all donations up to $30,000 that are made in the next 6 months.
