Opening Night Celebrations - May 1, 2015 - Delta Sault Ste. Marie, 7 p.m.

Passport To Unity, in partnership with Great Lakes Honda, Algoma University and Algoma District School Board, bring a night of recognition and inspiration at the Opening Night Celebrations.

We would like to announce keynote speaker Sabrina Jalees!

Sabrina Jalees’s comedy has taken the world by storm.

Opening for the likes of Russell Peters and a headliner comic in her own right, Sabrina never fails to draw laughter with her shoot-from-the-hip style.

As a keynote speaker, Sabrina tells her personal story with sincerity and wit, relaying the message that when you own and embrace your individuality, you unlock the transformation from “embarrassed” to “empowered.”

When she started in comedy, Sabrina was the youngest comic to tour for Yuk Yuks, the youngest comic to record a Comedy Now special, and the youngest stand-up comedian to perform at the prestigious Just For Laugh’s Festival.

Now a seasoned professional, Sabrina is well-known for her role on Much Music’s Video On Trial and as the former host of CBC Radio’s Laugh Out Loud with Sabrina Jalees.

She was also the Toronto Star’s weekly humour columnist for three years.

As an actor, Sabrina has been seen in Mom at Sixteen, Flashpoint, System Crash, Plastic Makes Perfect and The A- List, and she also was a contender on Last Comic Standing.

Also, nominate a community driver for the 2nd Annual Community Driven Awards partnered by Great Lakes Honda!

The Community Driven Awards recognizes those who are doing amazing work in creating identity, belonging, and a sense of place in the community.

Look at family, friends, co-workers, boss, or someone from the greater community.

We want to hear the fantastic stories of the selfless work that happens here in our city.

Tell us who the ambassadors of our city are, who are the drivers of positive change, and why they are “Community Driven”.

There are five categories this year; High School / Elementary School, Post-Secondary, Volunteer, Leadership and Group.

Click here to nominate a Community Driver.

Tickets for the event are $20.00 each and can be purchased online or in person at the Sault Career Centre, 503 Queen St. E.

Passport To Unity is hosted by the Sault Community Career Centre.
