End Violence Against Women Fundraiser this weekend!
Submitted By Steve Fontaine on Wednesday, November 27, 2019
End Violence Against Women Fundraiser this weekend at Holly Community Centre from 1:00pm - 7:00pm on Saturday November 30th.

Join us this Saturday, November 30th at the Holly Community Rec Centre from 1pm - 7:30pm as we wear purple to show our support for Sandgate Women’s Shelter of York Region and The Women and Children’s Shelter of Barrie.

 

Shelters across the province of Ontario are engaging the community to become more aware of the often overlooked issue of abuse against women. During the month of November, everyone across Ontario is invited to participate in showing abused women across the province that they have our support. The United Nations has designated November 25th (the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women) as the first of ‘16 days of Action’ to eliminate Violence Against Women across the world.

 

This fundraiser includes a silent auction with items from Cabela’s Inc, Bradford Greenhouses Garden Gallery and more...a bake sale, Christmas Candy Kebabs and the OAITH (Ontario Association of Interval & Transition Houses) purple scarves for sale from the Wrapped in Courage Campaign. The OAITH is asking Ontarians to wear this purple scarf especially during the ‘16 days of Action’ to show women and their children that their community supports them and that they are not alone.
