This March marks the centenary of International Women Day and Hamilton will be joining the global celebration. Hamilton has a proud legacy of recognizing International Women’s Day and to celebrate this special occasion we are organizing an evening of pure fun.
This special event, called “Singing Her Praises...Celebrating Women,” will be held Friday, March 11, 2011, at 6 p.m. at Michelangelo Banquet Centre, 1555 Upper Ottawa. The evening features the artistry of Jude Johnson, Queen Cee, the Métis Women’s Circle, Michelle Titian, Dee Dee Laroque, Pauline Kajiura and more. Enjoy delicious hors d'oeuvres while bidding at our fabulous silent auction table. A cash bar will be available.
The event will bring together women and men from across the community to celebrate, laugh, sing, praise, honour and remember the accomplishments of the women’s rights movement here and all over the world. Part of the proceeds from the evening will be donated to the Wellwood Resource Centre of Hamilton’s Gynecological Cancer Support Program. This program helps women in the city who are affected by uterine, ovarian, cervical, and other forms of cancer unique to women.
“Singing Her Praises…Celebrating Women” will offer an evening of song, laughter, sharing and remembering the women in your life who have made a difference. Tickets are $45.00 each or purchase a table of 10 at $450.00 by calling Greer Gordon at 905-527-5651. Please consider supporting this event in many ways. You can buy a ticket to attend.
