It truly was a wonderful event and a testament to the generous and caring support of this community! The 3rd annual Men in Heels & Lunch on Wheels held Thursday, June 13, 2019 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 remarkable men who bravely sported the big shiny red shoes and walked to raise awareness and funds!
We are delighted to report that proceeds from this year’s event set a new record: $27,746.40! 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 truckload of non-perishable food, household items and various essentials were collected for the women and children accessing DASO’s safe shelter.
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 committee members and volunteers, emcee Brad Janssen and piper Mike Pritchard who led the walkers down Dundas Street and to everyone who pledged and supported the walkers!
During the event, participants enjoyed tasty offerings from the food trucks and vendors including Todd’s Dogs, Tiffins A Better Sandwich and Boston Pizza (special thanks to Boston Pizza for donating all their product).
