Femme International wishes to send out a big thank you to all those who supported the “Afternoon Tea & Concert” event last week. We would particularly like to thank the local businesses who donated refreshments to serve, and also gift items for the silent auction: Array, Geronimo, Nature’s Way, The Bodhi Tree, B & H, Your Independent Grocer and Suite 12 who designed special cupcakes just for this day. The generosity of friends, neighbours, local artists and so many others who simply appeared with donations in hand was quite overwhelming.
To all those who came out to join us and to the amazing volunteers who gave so much of their time, we could not have done this without you. A huge very special thank you goes to Bella Borealis who donated their Sunday afternoon to provide beautiful music and absolutely delighted everyone! Your contribution to this event cannot be measured and we are so grateful. All funds raised will go directly to support the programs of Femme International which promotes women’s health through education; they are a leader in the field of menstrual health in east Africa and have kept thousands of girls in school. A great time was had by all and the benefits will live on for many years, so a big heartfelt THANK YOU to all! https://www.femmeinternational.org/
