Under the Umbrella Gala
September 29, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm UTC+7$195.00
Join WinHouse for the 2nd Annual Under the Umbrella Gala on Friday, September 29th!
Enjoy a fabulous dinner and amazing live entertainment all while helping us save and change the lives of those impacted by domestic violence.
Last year’s event was a truly memorable night beneath the beautiful chandelier at the Chateau Lacombe. Guests enjoyed champagne and hors d’oeuvres while browsing a range of silent auction items during cocktail hour.
Over 150 guests joined us for an elegant evening with an important message of empowerment for women who have weathered the storm – and were ready to tell their story. Without a doubt, the inspirational highlight of the night was the speech of former WIN House client, Jill, who told her story of devastating trauma, of her journey to healing and of her courage to stand up to domestic violence.
Through an energetic and exciting cash appeal, we were able to raise over $34,000 to purchase a new transport van, operate the 24/7 Helpline for a full year, provide over 200 babies with diapers during their 21 days in the shelter, and purchase the supplies for 30 household packages. In total, the event raised $55,000 in its first year and was a huge success! Help us make the 2017 year bigger and better than ever.
Big or small, every positive action makes a difference in the lives of abuse victims. We can do something about it.
