Raising funds for programs that impact our future leaders

You have no doubt felt the impact of COVID-19 and Girls Inc. of Durham have been monitoring the situation with recommendations from Public Health Agency of Canada, we have decided that the best thing to do for the health of attendees is to hold a virtual “Power of the Purse” Event.

Many of you have expressed concerns over how COVID-19 will impact our event and your ability to attend/participate. Many of you may have a corporate ban on travel. Rather than putting you, the attendees, in the position of deciding whether or not to attend an event, we have made the decision to host a virtual event.  While this decision does not come lightly, we believe strongly that this is the right thing to do.

We are so excited to have the amazing Juno award-winning musician Serena Ryder  join us for our last year’s event on November 6th. We all enjoyed her performances of her acclaimed music for us as well as her speaking about the importance of mental health support.

Serena recently released the powerful song “Candy” from her upcoming new album “the Art of Falling Apart”, one that explores her own mental health journey that she shared with us.  Keep posted here for information on our 2021 guest 😉
