A Soiree to remember

The 2011 Starlight Soiree hosted by the Golden Women’s Resource Centre was a huge success.

Dear Editor,

Truly a collaborative community event the Starlight Soiree, 2011 Walk the Red Carpet Event, hosted by the Golden Women’s Resource Centre (GWRC) was a resounding success and we owe it to the incredibly supportive community of Golden and Surrounding Area.

It is truly touching to witness so much generosity, creativity, and support.

The Starlight Soiree is an important event with funds going towards overhead costs such as rent, hydro and administration.  Funds also go towards supplementing some of the important programs we offer such as the Golden Safe Home, Outreach, and Girlz Group.

Here is a breakdown of our event in numbers:

·         Over 250 people attended the event

·         Over 80 businesses and individuals donated to the event

·         46 volunteers contributed their energy and creativity to the event, worked endless hours and took initiative to create an intimate, elegant and beautiful ambiance for guests to enjoy.

·         There were over 15 performers: Thank you to Amuse Troupe, John Jenkins Small Town Revival, Leo Downey, the Golden Navel Academy, Tracy Mihajic and Mike G.

·         5 restaurants participated in this year’s food challenge: Thank you to: The island Restaurant, who won first place, Eleven 22, second place and Bacchus Books, third place. Honourable mention and thanks to the Mad Trapper and Whitetooth Bistro. Thank you for your creativity and passion for this event.

·         To date, the Starlight Soiree has raised $9,326.00 before expenses.

We cannot say “THANK YOU” enough to everyone who was a part of this year’s Starlight Soiree, but whether you attended the event, told your friends about the event, donated to the event, helped out with the event, etc., you have been such a tremendous support.

Thank you

The Golden Women’s Resource Centre Society
