The Progress Women of Excellence Awards takes place each November. Hosted by the Canadian Progress Club Halifax Cornwallis, 2016 marks the 27th year of this prestigious event! This annual fundraiser, hosted in support of Phoenix Youth Programs, is the only one of its kind in the Province and has raised well over $1.5 million to date. This year it takes place on November 16th at the World Trade and Convention Centre starting at 5:30 p.m.
It honours inspirational women who play an important role in our community. Women at the pinnacle of their professions are recognized in the following categories: Arts and Culture, Communications/Public Affairs, Education and Research, Entrepreneur/Innovator, Health Sport and Wellness, Management and the Professions and Young Woman of Distinction.
Through honouring these women, the Canadian Progress Club Halifax Cornwallis not only raises vital funds, but also works to increase Phoenix’s profile in the community. This evening helps to restore hope and dignity to the lives of youth who need a second chance. All proceeds of this event support Phoenix Youth Programs in our community.
