DASO receives Unifor golf tournament proceeds
Sept. 29 2016: This week DASO was the grateful recipient of a cheque in the amount of $13,000! The generous donation represents DASO’s portion of the proceeds from the annual Bob White Charity Classic.
This year marked the 10th anniversary of the fundraising golf tournament, which took place Monday, August 29, 2016 at the Oxford Golf and Country Club (Craigowan) in Woodstock. Once again a dedicated team of retired Unifor members, led by Bob Nickerson, organized and hosted a first-class event in support of local women’s shelters and agencies working to eradicate violence against women and children in the London, Woodstock and Ingersoll communities.
The Unifor donation will support DASO’s vital programs and services, including our 24/7 shelter for women and children in Oxford County impacted by domestic abuse and/or homeless.
Community volunteers keep DASO’s gardens looking beautiful
Aug. 2016: For the third year in a row Domestic Abuse Services Oxford has been named a finalist in Woodstock’s City Beautiful Awards competition! The awards recognize landscaping projects that enhance the aesthetic qualities of properties/facilities and contribute to the overall beauty of the city.
DASO’s lovely gardens are the result of the hard work of several contributors, including Tanice Swain and the great team from Vuteq who expanded the garden area during the United Way’s Day of Caring.
