2017 was the year of the rooster… and we can’t stop crowing about all the amazing moments that have left a lasting impression on us. Reflecting back on last year, our small team at Providence Healthcare Foundation were able to pull off many BIG things. It was our 30th anniversary this year… we had to make the year really special.
The holiday spirit was strong on December 6th as over 90 WIPP donors and guests gathered at The Lodge on Queen for a celebration like no other. It was the perfect combination of holiday shopping, great cocktails, and close friends gathering to unwind before the busy holiday season.
Thursday, September 28 was a special night of love and laughter with the women of WIPP at our annual creative event. Over 70 donors and guests gathered at the stunning HOK offices for a hilarious improv comedy workshop directed by Stephanie Herrera and Dwayne Mailman of Durham Improv Collective.
Over 80 donors and special guests came together for the 8th annual WIPP Inspiration Evening presented by Scotiabank on June 6 at the beautiful, new Scotiabank Conference Centre. This was a truly inspiring night for all who attended. We were pleased to host guest speaker, Nellie Vieira, Professional Negotiator and Coach.
It was an exciting night full of tea, big announcements and bigger hats on April 6th at the annual WIPP Voting Meeting presented by RBC! The women of WIPP gathered to celebrate the trailblazing women, both past and present, who inspire us to make our voices heard and support our community.
Our incredible WIPP friends and guests enjoyed a cozy evening that included great food, delicious drink, dancing and shopping as the wonderful conversation warmed up the atmosphere with holiday cheer. This evening would not have been possible without our generous sponsors Josie Walsh and Forget About It Supper Club. A big thank you for contributing to the success of our Holiday Social.
Thank you to everyone who was able to join us on October 6th, for the WIPP “Sip and Paint” Night! It was a wonderful evening of learning and creating. This was a new experience for many of us but we hope everyone was able to realize her creative potential and the power of self-expression!
On June 9, 2016, we had a unique opportunity as WIPP donors to come together and hear the stories of other inspiring women. We were moved by our dear friend, Patsy Badali, a long-time WIPP donor and volunteer, as she shared her first-hand experiences of Providence’s compassionate care in action with her family. We were also inspired and enlightened by Greta Hodgkinson as she shared her personal journey and passion for the Canadian arts and dance.
On March 31, 2016, we witnessed a truly wonderful evening of camaraderie that showcased the great power of collective giving! Together, we all gathered for a special first glimpse of the beautiful WIPP-funded revitalization of Seasons Café, with the redesigned space looking simply stunning!
On December 2nd 2015, over 60 WIPP ladies and their guests gathered together in festive Yorkville to celebrate the holiday season in style. The ladies of WIPP enjoyed a cozy pre-reception at the Bloor Street Diner, and then laughed, and maybe shed some tears together, watching the movie Brooklyn.
