On Thursday, February 16th 2017 at Club Roma, some members of the Women’s Committee attended the 7th Annual Women and Wellness event. It was a fun night with emcee Ruth Unrau, panelists Stuart Dorricott, Mary Barzyk-Livingston, Andrea Lindsay and special guest: Susan Stewart. Susan is a comedian, author and inspirational speaker who helps people reclaim their joyful true nature by seeing the slighter side of life.
Wine, light snacks, white elephant tables and a silent auction added to the evening with the main focus on Mental Health. Over 700 individuals attended this amazing educational fundraiser supporting Walk-In Counselling at the Niagara CMHA. This free Walk-In Counselling program is offered in Niagara Falls, Fort Erie and soon to be St. Catharines. The focus of this program is “One session at a Time” and is offered to individuals 16 years of age and older who are experiencing any issue that may be causing them emotional distress.
The Women and Wellness event was a huge success raising over $54 000 for Walk-In Counselling of Niagara and is definitely an event to consider attending.
