My name is Yolanda and I am the volunteer Coordinator of the Don Of All Trades Building Trees of Hope Program.  I recently hosted  a private Women Lunch  in aid of Herizon House Women’s Shelter-a not-for-profit, charitable organization that provides a place of safety where women and children will feel accepted, supported and empowered as they move towards living their lives free of violence in Durham Region.

This event was held  on Saturday, October 24, 2015

There was no charge for the lunch, instead I asked each of my guests to donate one brand new robe and a set of women’s slippers which would go directly to the shelter.

 As we all know, networking events are great but from my past experiences, I feel there is never enough time to really get to talk and get to know each other.

This  special lunch was the perfect opportunity for women in business to spend some time together, have fun,  connect and enjoy some good food, great conversation a nd help our community.

I was excited and looking forward to being their hostess for this event and being able to reach out and assist women and children in our community who at times, need help the most.
