Hola: A Night in Seville
HOLA: A NIGHT IN SEVILLE FUNDRAISER FOR ROMERO HOUSE
The Silent Auction of 40 items included art, antiques, jewellery, gift certificates, theatre and sporting tickets; plus there were numerous raffle and door prizes, all thanks to our generous donors. When it was all tallied up, we were delighted and proud to report that we will be giving $15,000 to Romero House.
Its founder, Mary Jo Leddy, addressed the audience reminding us of the importance of a warm welcome – whether to our fellow University Women’s Club members or to new refugees to Canada. Like last year, this year’s donation from UWC to Romero House will be used to buy laptops for young women, providing them with a crucial tool for success in Canada. We are fortunate to have such a strong relationship with this wonderful organization.
