2010 YWPA Dinner & Silent Auction Set for May 20th

On May 20, 2010, the Zonta Club of Halifax will hold their annual dinner and silent auction, which features a beautifully prepared four-course dinner, the winner of the 2010 Young Women in Public Affairs (YWPA) Award and entertainment by pianist John Boudreau.

Proceeds from the auction will be committed Zonta’s local service projects, including local community organizations such as Alice Housing, Bayers Westwood Family Resource Centre and Marguerite Centre, as well as the Zonta Club of Halifax Education Fund, which funds the YWPA Award.

Donors will receive special recognition in the event program, and we would be pleased to place business cards and/or information brochures beside items on the auction viewing tables. As a registered charity, the Zonta Club of Halifax Education Fund will issue tax receipts to both donors and winning bidders.

Established in 1951, the Zonta Club of Halifax has been and continues to be involved in many service projects aimed at improving the status of women. Education, with its far reaching effects and benefits, is the cornerstone of their efforts. The Zonta Club of Halifax is part of Zonta International, a worldwide service organization of executives in business and the professions working together to advance the status of women.
