As in past years, we were overwhelmed with the support we have received from local businesses and
corporations like Scotiabank, our event sponsor. Congratulations to our winning foursome from Acklands
Grainger comprised of Nawar Danou, Matt Warden, John Joseph and Brock Horton with a score of –12.
Again this year each golfer left with a very nice gift box courtesy of our friends at Hallmark Canada who have
been long time supporters of Crime Stoppers.

Almost $50,000 was raised this year to help Crime Stoppers of York Region continue being one of the leaders
in the province and nationally. We would like to thank all of our corporate sponsors along with all of the
individual golfers that came out to support our very worthy cause. Together we can continue to make York
Region one of the safest communities to live, work and play.

               ALLSTATE CRIME STOPPERS TOUR DE TIPS BICYCLE RIDE
                       On May 28th and 29th Crime Stoppers held its Tour de Tips bicycle ride fundraiser.
                       The event kicked off in Newmarket taking cyclists through, Peel, Halton and ending
                       at the Hernder Estates Winery in Niagara. It was a successful event that raised some
                       much needed funds for the three participating programs. The closing ceremonies was
                       a tranquil setting on the stone patio of the winery. We hope to see you there for next
                       years ride.
                       We would like to thank all of our sponsors and especially Allstate Insurance
                       Company of Canada who was our event sponsor and Hernder Estates Winery for
                       providing a great atmosphere for the closing ceremonies. Each rider enjoyed a sit
                       down meal and wine tasting after their two day
                       ride. We would also like to thank the York Re-
                       gion based sponsors, JBS Graphic Communica-
                       tions, Weston Produce and Bike Sports along
                       with the York Regional Police Auxiliary and
                       volunteers. Without their support the event
                       would not have been the success that it was.




                  CRIME STOPPERS 2nd ANNUAL SCHOOL SYMPOSIUM
On Tuesday, February 8th we hosted our 2nd Annual Student Crime Stoppers School Symposium at the
Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts. This years theme was ―Social Responsibilty‖. We had many
guest speakers based around this theme along with break out sessions for the almost 400 students and staff in
attendance to participate in. The day started with the opening ceremonies and the unveiling of this years
Student Crime Stoppers poster contest. Please take a moment and see the winning posters on page 4.

Our key note speaker this year was Gary Newman, the Program Director for Breaking The Cycle. Breaking
The Cycle is all about helping young people avoid getting involved in gangs or getting out of gangs if they are
already involved. Their mission is to facilitate the development of pro-social, leadership, and employment
skills to gang involved youth between the ages of 15–30 years old in contributing to an alternate lifestyle, one
in which pro-social dreams can be realized. During Gary’s motivational open dialogue with the students we
heard from some local youth who have been able to break their family cycle and become a valuable part of
society.

                 CRIME STOPPERS 2nd ANNUAL SCHOOL SYMPOSIUM
Other speakers included Allstate Insurance of Canada with their Action Against Distraction, MADD, Youth
Speak, York Region District School Board on anti bullying, Toronto Crime Stoppers and Toronto Police
Service on Facebook and internet safety and the York Regional Police on drugs and gangs. Each student and
staff in attendance was given a Crime Stoppers t-shirt with the saying ―I AM… MAKING A DIFFERENCE‖
on it. We would like to thank the York Regional Police Appreciation Night Committee who was our event
sponsor for this year’s event and Mr. Sub at Hwy 7/ Valleymede for being our lunch sponsor. Thanks also goes
out to our organizing committee, Sarah Timmins who was the voice of our morning announcement
commercial and the Z103 Street Team for entertaining everyone on breaks and during lunch. A great informa-
tive day was had by all.




                  STUDENT CRIME STOPPERS POSTER CONTEST
This year we held another Student Crime Stoppers poster contest throughout all of the high schools in the re-
gion. We would like to thank all of the students who submitted their very creative posters for judging. It was
a difficult task to select only three winning posters out of the submissions. The winning posters are used
throughout the schools to promote the Student Crime Stoppers program. The only direction that was given to
the students was that we were looking for posters that represented what Crime Stoppers meant to them. It is
amazing how creative everyone was. Congratulations to this years winners from Langstaff Secondary School
in Vaughan and Richmond Green Secondary School in Richmond Hill.

                CRIME STOPPERS APPRECIATION DINNER

On Thursday, April 14th we held our annual appreciation dinner at the Community Safety Village in Bruce’s Mill Con-
servation Area. Many corporate supporters, police and media were in attendance. We started the night out with opening
remarks and a flashback from the past video highlighting our 25 years in business. The video highlighted the beginnings
of Crime Stoppers with many old clips going back into the 80’s. The video can be viewed on our YouTube page. Each
year we use this event to thank our financial supporters, members of media and also present 5 year plaques. This year
with it being our 25th anniversary York Regional Police Chief, Eric Jolliffe and Crime Stoppers of York Region,
Vice—Chair, David Mountain were presented with a plaque from the Town of Markham by Ward 3 Councillor, Carolina
Moretti on behalf of Mayor Frank Scarpitti. At a later date each Board member was presented with a scroll from the
Minister of Tourism and Culture, MPP Markham—Unionville, Michael Chan.
