2nd Annual Spring Luncheon – Celebrating Women & Girls

Join us on Sunday, May 6th at Cardinal Golf Club (that’s the weekend prior to Mother’s Day – a great way to celebrate with the women in your life!).

Grandmothers, Mothers, Daughters, Granddaughters, Aunts and friends will find this a lovely afternoon spent in celebration and support of women in our community. Grandfathers, Fathers, Sons, Grandsons, Uncles and friends are, of course, welcome too! This is meant to be a multi-generational event attended by families and friends, in celebration of women!

This year’s theme is “Balancing Act: The Holy Grail of Womanhood”. Work/Life Balance…. School/Life Balance… This event has something for every generation and will feature these inspiring women… 

Samantha King is the founder of Fempire Builders – Fempire Builders’ core purpose is to support the growing number of women entering the world of entrepreneurship by creating a community of women who empower and support each other through mastermind groups, education and mentorship as they build the lives of their dreams while creating the work/life balance they crave. Samantha is a busy mompreneur and homeschooler with two young children and a couple of businesses at home. When Samantha’s daughter was diagnosed with autism, she had to learn how to keep her priorities aligned within her family, while operating her business at the same time. Just because you have decided to become a business owner, it does not mean that ‘life’ and outside circumstances do not happen, does it?

Lexi & Amanda Benlolo from Aurora, founded The Pampered Pillowcase, as teenagers, in 2014. Their organization provides a “Pampered Pillow” to women within shelters and centres (including WCYR) within the community. The pillowcase is filled with items to make a woman feel special and ultimately, pampered.

Bernadette Connors is a singer/songwriter, performer, and vocal coach from Keswick, Ontario. Bernadette has grown up playing music with her family. Her mom, dad and three older brothers have really shaped her musical insight and abilities, and from there she’s had many opportunities to work with countless talented individuals who continue to influence and inspire her.

York Harmony Chorus is an award-winning, a cappella ensemble dedicated to promoting and celebrating the Barbershop style of music.  They are a vibrant group of women (there are over 40 of them!) who meet once a week in Sharon, Ontario to rehearse and share in the art of four-part harmony.

…and more…local vendors, raffles, prizes and fellowship!

Women’s Centre of York Region has been making a difference in the lives of women across York Region for 41 years! For women who have identified the need and desire for positive change in their lives, Women’s Centre of York Region offers unique programming and services that address a range of circumstances at little or no cost. In a safe and inclusive environment, we welcome each woman and meet her right where she is. Our goal is to fully support each woman on her personal journey of discovery in order that she thrives fully. The work we do is good for women, their families and our community. Together we are making a difference.

Fundraising for our counseling, programs and tangible supports is vital to our continued success. We have a wait list for counselling. We have a wait list for programs. Economic conditions continue to challenge individuals, businesses and charitable organizations like ours. No matter the market conditions, the need continues.

All proceeds from this event will directly support our programs for women!

Hope you will join us.
