      The 4th Annual Under the Umbrella Gala - Unmasking Domestic Violence

      On Saturday, October 19, 2019 WIN House will celebrate our 4th Annual Under the Umbrella Gala at the Renaissance Edmonton Airport Hotel. This Masquerade Gala will unmask the stigma of domestic violence and give a voice to survivors all while helping to raise funds for WIN House. Let's end the secrecy and silence surrounding domestic violence. This is WIN House's largest fundraising event of the year! Our goal for this event is to raise both funds and awareness towards the sustainability of a stronger community for us all. Domestic Violence deserves our attention because 1 of its most lasting consequences is the harm it does to family bonds. By addressing it, we get closer to a community where violence is unacceptable – A community which is safe. Together we can break the silence to end domestic violence. It starts by believing that we can. On average, we receive over 350 women and 500 children a year. The funds we raise makes it possible to provide the programs and services needed to give survivors the hope and help they need to overcome domestic abuse. The evening includes a cocktail reception with a silent auction and raffle, 3 course dinner and stories from survivors and those working to end domestic violence. Last year's Under the Umbrella Gala was a huge success that raised $106,330 to help our mission of furthering non-violent relationships and environments for women with or without children. We hope you will join us. If you would like information about our Sponsorship Opportunities, please contact Linda by e-mail at linda.kelly@winhouse.org or phone at (780)471.6709, Ext 226.
