On Wednesday, November 15th, 2023, we celebrated our 14th Annual Women to Women Symposium! Over 650 guests from all walks of life gathered together to network with like-minded business women and individuals from our business community.
We couldn’t have done it without all of our amazing sponsors and attendees who truly made this event possible. A special shout out to SMEG Canada, this year’s Platinum Presenting Sponsor for your partnership and generosity. What a successful day celebrating women in business but more importantly “women supporting women”.
We are thrilled to announce that proceeds from our beautiful SMEG centrepieces raised $9,000 and were donated to the Vaughan Food Bank. As well just over $5,000 was raised in our raffle and proceeds were split between the charities that participated in this years event as vendors including, After Breast Cancer, Catholic Community Services of York Region, Nankind, The 482 Collective and the Pinball Clemons Foundation. Thank you to all who supported. We look forward to seeing you at next year’s 15th Annual Women to Women Symposium!
