Chartered in 1981

Our dynamic club of women of diverse ages and backgrounds is active in Abbotsford and Mission.  We plan events each year, including a dinner and auction fundraiser in fall and our Awards luncheon in April. Our fundraising efforts support our mission of improving the lives of women and girls.  We usually partner with an organization that supports women for our auction; a recent event raised over $12,000 for the Warm Zone, a drop in center in Abbotsford for homeless, street engaged women.  Our awards luncheon is an inspiring event where we present our Live Your Dream awards. We are currently in the planning stages for a new project – ‘Dream It, Be It’ for girls. This will be an opportunity for our members to be directly involved with the girls we hope to inspire. We are currently seeking presenters for workshops on various topics, including goal setting, resume writing, interview skills. We would welcome contact from potential presenters!
