Our first “ShowHer” event took place on Sunday July 23, 2017 between 1pm to 4pm.
I’m so grateful to all those who came out to support this initiative! It was so worthwhile just to see the looks on the faces of the women who received the items at the recipients of the donations, Herizon House – an Ajax shelter for women and children and Wings Maternity Home – a refuge for displaced young women while they are pregnant.
An ENORMOUSLY special thanks goes out to all the individuals who made this event so successful both behind the scenes and on the day of!!
