The inaugural Men in Heels & Lunch on Wheels held Thursday, June 1, 2017 at Museum Square in downtown Woodstock was a great success thanks to the generosity of DASO’s partners and supporters and the men who bravely sported the big shiny red shoes and walked to raise awareness and funds!.
Pledges and donations are still trickling in and we are thrilled to report that total proceeds are nearing $16,000! All of these funds will go towards DASO’s vital programs and services for women in Oxford County victimized by physical and sexual violence.
Thank you to all who contributed to this spirited event including co-chairs Diane Langner (Woodstock Print & Litho) and Leslie Farrell (Tim Hortons on Norwich Ave.), the partners and sponsors listed below, and the many other anonymous donors including those who participated in the Buy-a-Shoe fundraiser and the Fill-a-Basket initiative that brought in a truckload (really!) of essential supplies for our 24/7 shelter for women and children.
Our thanks too to a great team of volunteers who organized the lunchtime event, to emcee Brad Janssen and to piper Mike Pritchard who led the walkers down Dundas Street. During the event, participants enjoyed tasty offerings from the food trucks (Tim Hortons, Todd’s Dogs, McLay Bros. BBQ and Boston Pizza) and the Thursday market vendors. It was a wonderful day – here are some photos….
Stay tuned for dates and details of next year’s event!
TOGETHER WE ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE!
