International Womans Day Dinner Party 2014 with Guest of Honour Mary Walsh from this Hour Has 22 Minutes!
As 2 of the Founding sponsors of the 11th Annual Dinner Party in Celebration of International Womens Day, Cheryl Kopko and I were thrilled to be a part of this record breaking event. With over 700 guests, Mary Walsh kept us all spellbound with raucous laughter while we honoured the women who fought to end discrimination against women. They fought for our legal entitlements such as our right to vote to work to hold public office. Every generation since has built on the accomplishments of these brave women. Our dinner party celebrated our mothers, mentors, teachers and idols who paved the path for the rest of us! All of the proceeds went to Savis (our local Sexual Assault and Violence Intervention Centre) and Canadian Women in Support of Afghan Women.
