Charity of Choice May 2019
2019 Annual Sponsors
On Wednesday, May 9th we held our second meeting of 2019 at the beautiful and spacious Tosca Banquet Hall.
The evening was kicked off with a greeting from our newest member and generous Annual Platinum Sponsorship – Kelly Jones from Revera Westney Gardens and one of the original residents Grace. View presentation
Claudia Gutierrez – Director, Events, and Operations at Their Opportunity, our February Charity of Choice, shared how our donation is being used to help sustain the roar and build a legacy. They are working on a curriculum-based program that will be into schools this September. Intermural children can compete and have the support of the schools, with an end of season festival that will bring all the schools together. They are also setting up a para-athletes fund, where athletes can access money for equipment and fees to eliminate the barriers. View presentation
We heard from two new charities! Always excited to learn more about programs that serve our communities and how we can give back:
- Susan Remmer – Director of Development Ontario Shores Foundation for Mental Health View Presentation
- Nova’s Ark – Mary-An Nova – Director of Nova’s Ark View Presentation
- Durham Human Society – Volunteer Vera View Presentation
We had three NEW members join us at the meeting, bringing our total to:
82 members!! We are getting there!
Our goal for 2019 is to reach 100+ women, and together we can achieve it:
100+ members x $100 donation each = a 10,000+ donation to the Charity of Choice!
The more members we have, the more significant the impact we can make in the community. #LocalWomenLocalImpact
