International Women's Day Luncheon
Thank you for joining us at our 5th Annual International Women’s Day Virtual Luncheon. This year over 250 guests enjoyed a gourmet takeaway meal from one of our 4 participating restaurants across the county while enjoying an inspiring keynote speech from Lani Elliott, Domestic Violence survivor and advocate. Cornerstone is grateful for our communities support of this all new format and for the continued participation and enthusiasm our community has shown for this to Cornerstone. Together, we raised over $47,000 for local women and children that have been impacted by family violence. By showing your support, you have helped us to create a place in our community that hope can take root and grow.
On behalf of Cornerstone Family Violence Prevention Centre, we would like to extend our deepest thank you to Lani Elliot for sharing her story of courage and power with us. Lani’s story was one of resilience and of bravery and was truly inspiring. Thank you Lani.
Nights of Shelter Fundraiser
It costs approximately $125 to provide a night of shelter to a women or child in Northumberland County. This year, we set a goal to raise $5,000 which equates to 40 nights of shelter. To add to the excitement, we had a generous anonymous donor and Lindsey Edwards, who both agreed to match the $5,000. We are very ecstatic to announce that together we raised over $18,000! Thank you to all who supported the Nights of Shelter initiative and be sure to take a peek at the Spring Edition of Watershed Magazine for a one page thank you to our supporters!
