Not to be confused with the Durham YMCA and its spectacular gym, we are the YWCA, where the "W" stands for "women!" Services include a women's emergency shelter, second-stage housing and family programs. Go to www.ywcadurham.org for more information.
On-Line Auction is now up and running. Just a few days left to bid on two fabulous items. Take that weekend getaway you always wanted with a round trip for 2 to Quebec with Via Rail or enjoy getting out on golf course as often as you like with a 2014 Carruther’s Creek Golf Membership. For complete details about these items and to place your bid visit http://www.ywcadurham.org/auction
Are you finally getting to your spring cleaning, now that warmer weather has finally arrived? Not sure what to do with that gift that you will never use or the gift card from the store you NEVER shop at? Look no further – your re-gifts can help raise much needed funds for the women and children of Y’s WISH Shelter. Since Y’s WISH opened its doors in 2003, it has provided a safe haven and support for thousands of women and children. Donating to the silent auction is the perfect way to help us raise funds to support the programs and services at Y’s WISH Shelter. On Friday, June 13th, 2014, YWCA Durham will celebrate our 11th Annual Starry Nights – dinner, dance & auction at the Jubilee Pavilion in Oshawa. Tickets are $55 each or a table for 10 is $500. Please contact our office at (905) 576-6356 or via email at email@example.com to find out more or to make arrangements to donate your re-gifts.
Happy International Women's Day!
