Over 1300 volunteers and guests convened under the roof of the Vancouver Convention Centre for an excellent cause: recognizing women and organizations that have made a significant difference in our community. We were more than happy to provide a Steinway Piano for such a wonderful night of celebration!
As the beautiful sunset retired through the windows of Canada Place, pianist Trevor Hoffman serenaded guests on the Steinway grand piano as they listened to uplifting speeches and honoured the many inspiring women who were identified for their achievements.
The Women of Distinction Awards is a premier fundraising event for YWCA Metro Vancouver, which helps provide much needed support to counter poverty. Over $180,000 was raised at this event, which will support a variety of YWCA programs and services for low income women and children throughout metro Vancouver.
