Welcome to CHW Toronto
I can’t believe that I am now the 45th President of CHW Toronto Centre. It is with pride and honour that I accept this position. I am extremely pleased to be working with a very capable and committed group of women who form the Executive Committee. They are: Tali Baum (Vice President), Gayla Schwartz (Secretary), Stephanie Caplan (Treasurer), Julie Spira (Fundraising Chair), Brondell Shapiro (Annual Campaign Chair) and Elayna Latsky (Immediate Past President).
I am also looking forward to working with returning and newly appointed Board members who have been assigned to our various committees: Mentorship, Membership, Fundraising and the recently formed Resource & Technology Committee.
With the arrival, finally, of spring, so begins the Annual Campaign. Chapters are in full swing with their fundraisers and there is such a variety of events. Please let the office know the date of your event so that I or another Executive member can attend or if you need any assistance. The CHW office staff and the Executive team are here to help you. A sincere thank you to all chapters for your exciting fundraising efforts.
The Annual Campaign is also the time when our members are asked to make a personal donation to CHW. These donations are what help support our projects in Israel and Canada. Our most recent projects are the CHW Marla Dan Stroke and Invasive Neuroradiology Institute at the Assaf Harofeh Medical Center and the Louise Temerty Breast Cancer Centre at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. When you receive your pledge card, please join me in making your personal Annual Campaign donation.
With our new Executive team and the hardworking and generous members of Toronto Centre, I know that we can accomplish great things for CHW.
