International Women’s Day Fashion Show Fundraiser: ‘High Tea for Equity’
Date: Sunday, March 5, 2023
Time: 1:00 pm-4:00 pm
Location: 1174 Italia Lane, Kingston
Join us on Sunday, March 5th from 1-4 pm for this year's International Women's Day: 'High Tea for Equity' Fashion Show Fundraiser event hosted by the Italo-Canadian Club of Kingston, partnered with Expressions Fashion Boutique and raising money for a local charity, Girls Inc.
This campaign will be an opportunity to celebrate local women who have made a difference in the community when it comes to progressing gender equity, which is this year’s global theme for International Women’s Day.
Slightly different from equality, gender equity is the process of allocating resources, programs, and decision-making fairly to all genders without any discrimination based on gender and addressing any imbalances in the benefits available to people of different genders.
Leading up to the event, we're asking the public to nominate someone they think deserves to win this year's Inspirational Woman Award. We want to recognize a female leader in our community who has made a difference when it comes to progressing gender equity. The nomination period will run from February 1-13th. Nominations will be narrowed down to the Top 3 and the winner of the award will be a result of a poll voted on by the public. Voting will take place from Feb 21-March 3. The winner will be announced at the event and will receive a $500 cash prize and trophy.
In addition to the awards program, the event will feature a fashion show by Expressions Fashion Boutique, High Tea food and beverages, a keynote speaker and local female vendors. Not to mention the chance to win door prizes!
By attending this event, you will be showing support for local female vendors and business owners, Girls Inc charity, and the amazing individual receiving the Inspirational Woman Award.
