Welcome to CHW Vancouver
CHW Vancouver President, Stephanie Rusen
2017 was a good CHW year especially with our terrific Opening honouring Helen Coleman, Lori Yelizarov and Courtney Cohen. Now we have many things planned for 2018!
January started with our Literary Afternoon on the 21st. Don Chapman discussed his book, The Lost Canadians, about the large number of people whom think they are Canadians, but, by law, are not.
March is the start of our Annual Campaign when we contact everyone personally. We at CHW passionately raise funds for Children, Healthcare and Women. Our daycares, schools, hospitals and shelters last year improved the lives of 161,453 people. CHW makes a real difference with your help. Please help us continue doing so by volunteering and giving generously when your canvasser calls.
Aviva Games Day will be May 16 at the Richmond Country Club. Come join us for an entertaining day of Bridge, Canasta, Scrabble, and Mahjong. Enjoy lunch, a sumptuous dessert table, and a huge Silent Auction. Can’t play those games? Last year we added our favourite family games, which made for much laughter. Come and join the fun!
Shop for your perfect Mother’s Day outfit at Stepin Out again this year. Stepin Out has fabulous clothes and has been voted Best Shoe Store in Richmond the past two years. The event is planned for May 9, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Our CHW Walk to Protect Children will be in September. This year, we are planning a few surprises, maybe even a celebrity or two. Be sure to watch for more details and join us as we raise funds and have a fun family-friendly day.
Our next Opening Event will be Sunday, October 21. Mark your calendar now! The Opening Committee is already at work planning a big celebration.
As always, I would love to hear your questions and comments! Got some time? Want to help? Please call or email the office.
