Last wintery night, 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, as the wonderful conversations warmed up the atmosphere with holiday cheer, while the women savoured the delicious appetizers and drinks. The festive pre-reception would not have been possible without our generous sponsor, The Proud Group (Jill Proud, Chair of WIPP). A significant thank you to Jill for generously supporting the pre-reception.
After the pre-reception, the WIPP ladies and guests made their way together, arm-in-arm with their candies, popcorn and sodas to the Varsity Theatre… and voila, we made WIPP history yesterday, with our first movie screening together! We bonded together as we laughed, and maybe shed some tears together, as we watched Brooklyn. We simply must express our heartfelt thank you to our movie sponsor, 20th Century Fox (Mike McLaughlin), for the popcorn, sodas and the movie. Thank you also to Khadjia Somji for providing the candies for the event.
Lori, Pat and Anny will now be entered into the WIPP Hall of Fame! Also, a huge congratulation to our lucky door prize winners, Nadia Sehra, Alison Strimas and Brooke Bethune.
To all of our WIPP donors, and our valued guests, thank you again for attending. We wish you and your family and friends a safe and happy holiday! See you in 2016!
