HALTON WOMEN September Meetup!

It's our first EVENING EVENT!

We will be meeting at DOMILYA Group HQ in Burlington on Thursday September 26th from 6-9 PM


Join us for an evening of light and soulful motivation with the fabulous and fun Laurel Crossley, as we join together for an evening of true inspiration and positive vibes.

Something else that's very important to our hearts: supporting Halton women! That is why for this event, we have decided to donate ticket proceeds (not including $1.69 per ticket processing fees) to our charity of choice, Halton Women's Place.

Tickets are just $20 (+ $1.69 Eventbrite fee) each, and together we can make a huge difference for women and children in need within our own community.

What is Halton Women's Place?

A brief description provided to us by HWP:

"Halton Women’s Place is a charitable organization that provides safe shelter for abused women and their children, and aims to also provide information and education to support a future without violence against women. We operate two shelters, one in Burlington and one in Milton, which hold 30 and 22 emergency beds, respectively, serving all of Halton Region. Last year alone, Halton Women’s Place provided services to over 700 women children through our residential and transitional programs.
