The Pemberton Philanthropists would like to thank everyone who volunteered, donated and attended the Fundraising Dinner for Pearl's Safe Home Pemberton on Sept. 13.
In August of this year, three of us began a dialogue about helping survivors of domestic violence in our community. As a result, the 'Pemberton Philanthropists' group was formed. Our goal is to support the Howe Sound Women's Centre in raising funds for Second Stage Housing in Pemberton — a facility offering long-term (three to 12 months), secure housing with support and referral services designed to assist women while they search for permanent housing.
Thank you to Howe Sound Women's Centre for giving us the motivation to do this. Thanks also for donations and support from Sea to Sky Community Services Society, Scott Downing (Sysco), Lea Hickenbottom, Pemberton Lions Club, AG Foods, PV Supermarket, Kristen Robinson (Whistler FM), Grace Chadsey (Question), Colleen Cann (Rona). A huge thank you to our volunteers, James Linklater, Tanya Mullins, Katrina Ahern, Sara Bolton, Grizz Robinson and Pemberton Legion for hosting. A special thanks to Adrian Ralph for signing up for the Walk-A-Mile event in Whistler on Sunday, and to everyone who gave such great moral support during the advertising campaign!
