The event, which benefits the Sudbury Community Foundation, starts at 12 p.m. at Ristorante Verdicchio's new Natura banquet hall.
During the course of his career, Trudeau — the second of three children born to former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau and Margaret Trudeau and brother of federal Liberal leader Justin Trudeau — has reported from China, Iraq, Liberia, Haiti, Israel, Palestine, and Russia.
Trudeau’s most recent project is "The New Great Game", a documentary that traces the world’s most pivotal shipping route, the Straight of Hormuz, and reveals how ocean-wide trade is the foundation of a fraught and changing global economy.
He will touch the importance of philanthropy and discuss how community foundations are the cornerstone of every community. Trudeau is a member of the executive committee of the Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation.
Seating is limited. Tickets are $45 each or $240 for a table of six. To purchase tickets, contact Emily at the Sudbury Community Foundation at [email protected] or by phoning 705-673-7770.
