A huge thank-you to all who attended our Brick x Brick event at the new Equinox Gallery on September, 27, 2012, our first fundraising event in support of the YWCA Cause We Care House. That evening, over 200 friends and supporters got together to celebrate the efforts of all our volunteers and supporters and get more information on what we are planning as we move forward. As well, we encouraged donations towards “bricks” to help build this important subsidized housing facility. This project, a collaborative initiative between the City of Vancouver, the Vancouver Public Library and the YWCA is set to enhance the Downtown Eastside/Strathcona neighbourhood and provide safe, affordable housing as well as programs to help single mothers and their children in need. Thanks to everyone’s generous support, we were able to raise over $100,000 to our campaign – or over 407 bricks! Thank you all once again for making this evening a tremendous success! As well, thank you to our generous evening sponsors:
