Description

On Saturday June 16, 2018, the Interact Club of Lethbridge will host our third annual fundraiser, the Interact Club of Lethbridge Global Gala, at the Southern Alberta Ethnic Centre.

This wonderful evening is sure to be a most memorable celebration! Guests will enjoy a buffet dinner; amazing cultural dancers and entertainment, as well as a dance to follow, featuring Dory and the Weathermen. We will also enjoy a large Silent Auction with many unique items.

The Interact Club of Lethbridge is hosting the Global Gala in support of the YWCA Lethbridge & District Harbour House Women’s Emergency Shelter, and in the construction of the House of Hope - Tanzania a project of Bridges of Hope.

YWCA Harbour House Women’s Emergency Shelter is a 30-bed crisis unit in Lethbridge for women and children who are involved in abusive intimate partner relationships. Harbour House operates a 24-hour crisis line, provides emergency housing, counselling and the Harbour House School to meet the educational needs of children who reside in the shelter. The Harbour House provides a safe and supportive environment for women and children in need during crisis.

In Africa millions of girls do not have the opportunity to get an education. Most parents cannot afford to educate their daughters , so they are forced to stay home and work. Many of them are married by the age of 15 and 16, at which point there is virtually no hope of receiving an education. These girls deserve a chance at looking forward to a better tomorrow , a brighter future, and to get an education. The House of Hope will be a home and school for the girls of Tanzania who have aspirations and dreams, a safe place where they will live, grow and learn in a positive environment. The House of Hope will empower these young girls through Education. It will be a place of Hope!

Last year our Global Gala raised over $20,000 for Woods Homes and Uphill Both Ways. This year we are hoping to raise at least $20,000 again this year in support of the construction of the House of Hope in Tanzania and in support of the YWCA Harbour House Emergency Women’s Shelter.
