A decade of impact with Kate Linder and Friends celebrated at our FINAL OpportuniTea together! 

Kate Linder and March of Dimes Canada teamed up  for one last OpportuniTea together. Your favourite “The Young and the Restless” stars were there live to celebrate Kate’s decade of impact at her final Tea supporting MODC’s Conductive Education program!   

Kate and her costars were in Toronto for OpportuniTea for the first time since 2019 — attendees joined us for a Q&A, an autograph session with the cast, and live and silent auctions. Everyone had a great time while supporting children and youth living with disabilities who benefit from March of Dimes Canada’s Conductive Education® Program! 

Attendees were thrilled to spend an afternoon with Kate Linder (Esther Valentine) and her costars: Cait Fairbanks (Tessa Porter), Bryton James (Devon Hamilton), and Brytni Sarpy (Elena Dawson) along with Carolyn MacKenzie, host of The Morning Show on Global.
