CFUW Sudbury has again partnered with the YWCA and the Women’s Legal, Education and Action Fund (LEAF) to raise much-needed funds to assist women and girls in the Sudbury area with the 26th annual Celebrate Women event.
This year’s event, set for 10 a.m. March 5, will be virtual.
Author and lifestyle pioneer Debbie Travis will speak from her home in Italy about her recent book, “Joy: Lessons from a Tuscan Villa.”
“A lively and inspiring book with engaging and practical lessons on everything from how to get a good night’s sleep, find community, rediscover purpose, start a new endeavour, or regain your confidence,” said promotional material for the event, on Travis’ book.
CFUW Sudbury awards $8,000 in scholarships annually, YWCA Sudbury provides safe housing and support for women and children escaping intimate partner abuse and LEAF Sudbury distributes relevant books to local libraries that advance public understanding of women’s equality rights.
Tickets are now on sale, and cost $20 each. Details for registering or for purchasing a book can be found at cfuwsudbury.com.
