Vernon Women’s Transition House Society would like to thank everyone who participated in our spring fundraiser ‘Playhouses for Hope’. This amazing event raised over $5,000 to go towards our programs. We are fortunate to be part of such a supportive community, and our thanks goes out to each and every person who bid on the playhouses in the silent auction and to the lucky winners.
This fundraiser would not have been possible without the tremendous work of the Village Green Centre/Bentall Kennedy staff as well as all the playhouse sponsors, who all spent many hours painting and decorating the playhouses.
Our heartfelt gratitude goes out to
The Village Green Centre

Thank you to The Stor-It Place for generously donating a large storage container to store equipment purchased for our future Child and Youth Advocacy Centre. When The Stor-It Place General Manager, Kim Wallace, heard that we desperately needed a home for our equipment due to a delay in acquiring a site for our Centre she immediately offered up their facility. Kim and The Stor-It Place team have made a significant difference to our project and have been great to work with!
