Thanks to the generosity of community members, businesses, and artists, we have an amazing line-up of auction items available this year!
Please note: All bids over the fair market value (FMV) are eligible for a charitable tax receipt (less FMV). Bid high knowing your dollars directly support women and children in the Downtown Eastside!
Herstory in Focus is the Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre’s 5th annual gala, aiming to raise support and awareness for the work of DEWC and celebrating the strength and resilience of the women we serve.
Reserve your spot at this year’s event! Ticket purchases will directly benefit the Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre’s essential services.
We are now facing unprecedented times.
Due to COVID-19, Herstory in Focus 2020 will be a virtual event. This evening will include incredible speakers, performers, stories, and as the highlight of the night, women of the community performing in a fashion show, expressing their style and inner power. The event will also include an online silent auction, which will be opened for bids a week before the event.
Our fundraising goal this year is $50,000, which will directly support our meal program and drop-in centre, which has continued to support up to 500 women daily throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
We hope to see you (from a distance) on November 26, 2020 as we honour and celebrate the many herstories of strength and resilience in our community.
