2nd annual Men in Heels & Lunch on Wheels a resounding success!

The 2nd annual Men in Heels & Lunch on Wheels held Thursday, June 14, 2018 at Museum Square in downtown Woodstock was a fabulous, colourful, spirited and inspiring success thanks to the generosity of DASO’s partners and supporters and the amazing men who bravely sported the big shiny red shoes and walked to raise awareness and funds!

We are thrilled to report that proceeds from this year’s event were just under $19,000! All funds will go towards DASO’s vital programs and services for women in Oxford County victimized by physical and sexual violence.

We are also touched and extremely grateful for the amazing response to the Fill-A-Basket initiative: a full truckload – literally – of non-perishable food, household items and various essentials were collected for the women and children accessing DASO’s safe shelter.

Hearty and heartfelt thanks to all who contributed to this spirited event including Chair Diane Langner of Woodstock Print, our Stiletto Sponsor Vuteq Canada and many generous partners and sponsors listed below, the hardworking volunteers, emcee Brad Janssen and piper Mike Pritchard who led the walkers down Dundas Street.

During the event, participants enjoyed tasty offerings from the food trucks and vendors including Todd’s Dogs, Dairy Capital Cheese Shoppe and Boston Pizza (special thanks to Boston Pizza for donating all their product).
