2017 IWD Official Poster-page-001



Wow! We asked you to #BeBoldForChange and #BeBoldForNovaVita, and the result was amazing! Because of you we doubled our goal for our Fund-a-Need: “More Than a Bed”! We will be able to renovate 4 of the bedrooms in our emergency shelter right away, with the eventual goal to complete all 18. 

The evening was filled with BOLD energy. A delicious dinner was served courtesy of the Best Western Brantford Hotel and Conference Centre, followed by colourful and SWEET treats from Sweet Bakery. The Live Auction was entertaining and exciting as Layne the Auctionista presented incredible packages donated by our amazing supporters. We laughed, listened to inspiring stories, and came together as a community to support the wonderful vision of making our shelter rooms more homelike and comfortable.

Thank you to all that attended, our incredible sponsors, and wonderful volunteers. The evening would not have been possible without you. Check back soon for details for our 9th Annual International Women’s Day in 2018.
