Joanie speaking in front of a captivated audience

The great event last night at VIATEC allowed us to share and celebrate all the great things happening with our members.

We went around the room and let many of the members share their stories and projects. They all spent time collaborating on new ideas, especially with charities like Hero Work!

Shout out to the awesome band, Thirty Street , who rocked the house.

Congratulations to Patrick Arnold, who signed up as a new member! Welcome!

 

A team of Royal Roads University students have set out on a social-entrepreneurship venture to raise awareness and funds for The Children’s Health Foundation of Vancouver Island and The James Fund. They have launched an online store selling gift cards from local artisan and boutique shops in downtown Victoria – with 20% of all sales being donated to the charity. They have also organized an Artisan Dinner hosted at the Victoria Public Market at the Hudson on Friday May 15th, 2015. There will be a big contest to win a ‘City Getaway for Two,’ which includes a limo service to a VIP dinner and a night’s stay at a classic heritage home in James Bay with wine and chocolate.
