Niagara Women’s Enterprise Centre and Niagara Presents would like to thank the St. David’s ACW of St David’s Anglican Church in Welland for hosting their annual “ Ladies Day” fundraiser on Saturday. This event raises money which is donated to support women both locally and internationally . For the past three years the local charity chosen by the church has been Niagara Women’s Enterprise Centre- The fund is targeted for scholarships for NWEC graduates who are pursing post-secondary studies.
To date, 3 scholarships have been awarded from proceeds of these funds.
Women vendors and entrepreneurs from all over Niagara were offered tables to promote their services or products. As a vendor, Niagara Women’s Enterprise Centre sold Niagara Presents had a table and sold over $250 worth of products within in a few hours and sales will go into a fund to assist with program costs. The big sellers were the blushing peach jam; red pepper jelly; peach salsa and berries dipped in chocolate sauce. Women attending the event loved hearing the story how Niagara Presents is linked to our charity NWEC.
Graduates of the server programs of NWEC served at the event’s very successful and well-attended tea room.
The staff and boards of NWEC and Niagara Presents would like to thank St David’s ACW for their donation and support throughout the years.
