Water is life. Jennifer Jones—Rotary International director, president of Media Street Productions and chair of the UWindsor Board of Governors—believes it is a basic human right, yet an estimated 2 million people die every year from water related diseases, and more than a billion lack access to clean water and proper sanitation.
Jones will share her thoughts on water, human rights, peace and a special water endowment that she and her husband have initiated to stimulate social consciousness and action as the keynote speaker during a gala October 28 to support Canterbury College. The college is the Anglican Church affiliate with the University.
The gala begins at 6 p.m. at the Fogolar Furlan Club, 1800 North Service Road. Tickets are $90 per person, $700 for a table of eight. To reserve your seat, phone 519-253-3000, ext. 4955, by October 20 or visit the college’s website.
