WIPP Ladies Getting Their Shop On!

Joy and Celebration at the WIPP Holiday Social

December 18, 2018

On November 29th, WIPP celebrated the 10th anniversary of one of its most anticipated events of the year – The Holiday Social! Over 70 WIPP donors and guests gathered at the Oakham Lounge to celebrate 10 years of holiday giving. This "tin-sel" anniversary party was full of cheer as donors and guests caught up with old and new friends, crossed a few names off their holiday shopping lists, and let loose before the holiday season.

Thanks to the support and generosity of our donors, guests and vendors, this event was cost neutral so WIPP donor’s annual contributions will continue to directly support projects voted on by them at Providence Healthcare.

Welcome our new Chair, Sikin Kassum-Dharamshi!

During opening remarks, Anny Nasser announced her term as Chair of the WIPP Advisory was ending, but was honoured to welcome our new Chair, Sikin Kassum-Dharamshi! Anny’s leadership has taken WIPP to new heights and her continued involvement, with the support of Vice-Chair, Jennifer Reid, will allow Sikin to continue WIPP’s growth and success.

New Year, New Look!

Our donors were delighted with a surprise reveal of WIPP’s new logo! A big thank you goes out to graphic designer Margrie Wallace, and Ruth Bastedo of the WIPP Advisory Group for all their hard work on the new logo design.

Thank you for supporting WIPP!
