Herstory in Focus
March 10, 2022 | a virtual gala
VIRTUAL GALA: Includes comedy, a fashion show, musical performances, a silent auction, and much more!
HOST: Savannah Erasmus, “a “Vintage” comedian based in Vancouver, BC. She was raised in Kikino Metis Settlement and Cold Lake First Nation, in Treaty 6 Territory (Northern Alberta). Her Indigenous perspective and “fashion-focused” lens create a fresh and unique stand-up persona that audiences adore. “
FUNDRAISING GOAL: The Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre is recording a 50% increase in the number of women accessing services since provincial health and safety restrictions were relaxed on July 1, 2021. Oftentimes, a hot, nutritious meal is a gateway for the community’s most vulnerable women to a continuum of holistic supports to improve her situation. DEWC’s meals program is still mostly funded by individual donations, and our goal is to fundraise over $120,000 to support DEWC’s expanding meals program. Thank you for your continued support!
