Welcome to CHW Toronto
Even with the slower pace during the summer months, CHW Toronto Centre has been hard at work planning and organizing for the upcoming year.
The Resource & Tech Committee has been working diligently for many months to bring us the “Go Guide,” a step by step guide to planning and preparing successful chapter fundraising events. The much anticipated launch date is Wednesday, October 14, 2015. Thank you to committee chair, Tova Train, the committee members and Ellen Ostofsky, Executive Coordinator for their dedication in seeing this guide to its completion.
The Mentorship/Leadership Connection committee, chaired by Esther Benbihy and Laurie Koch, has also been active in organizing the new Mentor/Mentee teams for the fall. The program’s opening meeting on Tuesday, October 13, 2015 will feature Judy Zelikovitz, who will speak about the Organizational Structure of CHW.
Chapters will soon be starting to gear up again for another year of interesting programs and fundraisers. I would be very happy to visit your chapter and update you about our projects and the different programs and fundraising initiatives offered by CHW Toronto Centre.
Our Membership Committee, chaired by Evelyn Buchbinder, will be organizing a membership drive for the fall season. We are happy to place new members in existing chapters or help in organizing new chapters.
Our gala soiree on Saturday, November 7, 2015 at the Eaton Chelsea Hotel in support of CHW will be the event of the year. Guest keynote speakers are The Honourable John Baird, former Canadian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Colonel (ret.) Natan Barak, founder and CEO of mPrest Systems, the leader of the Iron Dome Command and Control System development. The evening will also include cocktails, dinner and music. Funds raised at this event will support an underground operating room at Hadassah Hospital. Thank you to Elayna Latsky, National Gala Chair and Shelley Fine, Toronto Centre Gala Chair for their involvement and support in helping to organize this wonderful fundraising event. For further information, reservations, or to donate, please contact the CHW National Office (416-477-5964 ext. 112) or the CHW Toronto Office (416-630-8373). Your support is greatly appreciated.
With Rosh Hashanah soon upon us, we reflect on all that we have accomplished and all that we would like to do in the coming year. Working together we can continue to do great things. I wish you and your family a very happy and healthy New Year. L’Shana Tova!
