Welcome to CHW Vancouver
CHW Vancouver President, Lori Barer
5779 is starting off in a very exciting manner. We had a good turnout for The Walk to Protect Children which supports the program for Healing Broken Families at CHW Hadassim Children and Youth Village in Israel. This year’s Walk in memory of Lila Goldin z’l took place along Jericho Beach on a sunny Sunday in September.
Our Opening Event, Gowns for Gowns, was sold-out and was a huge success! The funds raised go to support the New Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) at Assaf Harofeh Medical Centre. Guests were treated to a luscious lunch, a small silent auction, delightful door prizes, and a fabulous fashion show. Our Immediate Past President, Stephanie Rusen, was honoured, and our out-going and in-coming VLA was acknowledge for our commitment to CHW.
We have many continuing events planned: our CHW Book Club, a literary event, a Chanukah Party, The Aviva Games Day, and much more! We also welcome your questions, comments, and ideas.
I am hoping to continue to engage each of you, and to find ways to attract new members including the younger generations. Please plan to join us and come out to some more of our wonderful events. I am truly looking forward to seeing you. Please call or email the office if you would like to get more involved. I hope that every one of you can be as excited as I am while raising funds to support our projects for Children, Healthcare, and Women in Israel. Thank you for all your support!
