Wednesday August 19th, 2020 – throughout the day

We hope you’ll join us for a fun-filled event featuring exciting presenters from the world of food and drink, home décor, personal wellness and much more! Over the course of the day, you’ll be able to listen, learn and participate in as many sessions as you like – all while raising funds and awareness for women and children who have experienced violence and are living at our local women’s shelter, Julliette’s Place. Additionally, shelter staff will participate in a coffee chat to discuss how the pandemic has impacted their work and overall shelter operations.

Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic created a ‘perfect storm’ for domestic violence to increase. Physical distancing means some women have been in the presence of their abusers 24/7 when stress and worry have been at an all-time high. For some, job loss and economic uncertainty has created even more volatile circumstances at home. There are also fewer ways out of these dangerous situations. Where once a woman could call a crisis line while her partner was at work, now these life-saving calls are made while an abuser sleeps in the next room. Bottom line? Our shelter needs our help now more than ever.

Our Virtual Uplifting Party is how we plan to make a difference. Together, we’ll raise critical funds for Julliette’s Place, while lifting each other’s spirits and learning from our team of experts!
