Central Nova Women’s Resource Centre (CNWRC) is celebrating International Women’s Day and raising funds for its Girl Power Camps with a Head Over Heels High Tea at the Holiday Inn Truro on Friday, March 10, 2017.
Central Nova Women’s Resource Centre (CNWRC) is celebrating International Women’s Day with a Head Over Heels High Tea at the Holiday Inn Truro on Friday, March 10, 2017. We will welcome over 200 women for an enjoyable evening, and we’d love you to be a part of the celebration!
International Women’s Day is a celebration of respect, appreciation and love towards women for their economic, political and social achievements. All funds raised from this event will support Girl Power!, our summer camp programs for girls in Colchester County.
Our guest speakers at the Head Over Heels High Tea are Dee Dooley and Colette Robicheau.
Dee is a Governor General award recipient who was recognized for making an outstanding contribution to the goal of equality for women and girls in Canada. She will share her passionate story of working with teens at the YWCA in Halifax. Colette, who will present on the etiquette of a high tea, is the president of Organize Anything. She has honed her etiquette and protocol skills in the hospitality industry serving celebrities, politicians and dignitaries, and has trained at the Protocol School of Palm Beach.
Grab your friends and come enjoy an after-work social with us. You will have the opportunity to visit vendor booths from local female-owned businesses, and enjoy high tea--a delightful snack including tea, dainty sandwiches and treats on every table. There will also be a 50/50 draw, great door prizes, and a footwear fashion show and contest held by Elegant Steps. Participants of the footwear contest will have an opportunity to win a lovely prize for the "sexiest" or "most sensible" shoes.
Your support will not only change the life of a young girl by enabling her to attend Girl Power Camp, but also demonstrate your desire for a more inclusive, gender-equal world.
