Our 7th Annual Women and Wellness event on Thursday, February 16 was the biggest educational fundraiser we’ve hosted to date. With generous support from our sponsors, donors, and guests, we raised a record-breaking $56,479.31 on the night of the event in support of our Walk-In Counselling service.
The event hosted over 700 women (bringing Club Roma to capacity), and featured a panel discussion for the first time since its inception in Niagara. The panel included Stuart Dorricott, Board President of CMHA Niagara; Andrea Lindsay, Board Member of CMHA Niagara; and Mary Barzyk, Program Manager at CMHA Niagara. The panelists shared their personal experiences and professional expertise in answering commonly asked questions related to mental health concerns. The event also welcomed Susan Stewart, comedian and author, as the evening’s keynote speaker.
Once again, we are incredibly proud of and grateful for our amazing group of volunteers who make this evening possible. Their unrelenting dedication to building a mental wellness community is nothing short of inspiring.
SAVE THE DATE: The 8th Annual Women and Wellness event will be held on Thursday, February 15.
