Hats Off to Mom! Virtual Event

Happy Mother’s Day to all! As you know, our Hats Off to Mom! event has gone virtual this year. Due to COVID-19, we were unable to host our usual Mother’s Day brunch. Despite this, we still wanted to do something special for mothers and we thought a virtual event + auction would be a fun way to connect while social distancing! We invite you to put on your favourite hat and join in from home.

Let’s honour mothers while helping the moms and children in shelter. Our virtual auction begins on Sunday, May 10 and will continue until Monday, May 18. We have so many amazing items for you to bid on thanks to our wonderful community supporters. There will also be live music provided by local favourite, Juneyt! Please join us on Facebook Live at 11 am for a special performance by Juneyt while you browse the online auction. Be sure to log in and like our Facebook page so you do not miss this awesome performance!

Don’t forget about your hat! We encourage you to put on your best hat, take a photo, and share it on social media! Tag us on Facebook and Twitter @WomensCrisisSWR and use the hashtag #HatsOff2020. Thanks so much for joining us to celebrate mothers and for helping women and children move beyond violence.
