Dec 8th Waupoos Women’s Gala!

By | Fundraising

The 3rd Annual Women’s Gala was held on December 8th at Blessed Sacrament Church hall and over 100 women came together for a lovely evening!  As in previous years, women were invited to host a table of their friends, providing light snacks for them and a dessert to share with the group. The cost to participants; just $20.

The evening included entertainment, silent auction, raffle and vendors offering an opportunity to begin or complete Christmas shopping!

Most importantly, it was an opportunity to get together with friends! Participants included past and present farm residents, host families, volunteers and Waupoos supporters as well as some new friends.

 

Entertainment was provided by choral group “Key Rings!” and a surprise a flash mob by the McCann family! Thanks to everyone’s efforts and participation, over $4100 was raised to support Waupoos Farm!

By | Community Event, Fundraising

In November 2016, The Waupoos Foundation was selected as one of six Ottawa charities to receive funds from the 2017 Hope Volleyball Tournament on July 15, 2017.

“HOPE (Helping Other People Everywhere) is a volunteer, not-for-profit, event management organization that raises funds for community-based charities and has fun doing so.”  Learn more about HOPE

Our commitment was to provide at least 50 volunteers to help and with God’s help, we made that happen.

A HUGE thank you to all our friends who stepped up to volunteer on July 15th!

 

On November 23, 2017 we received a cheque for $25,000 from HOPE.

This money will be used to improve our cottages and that work has already begun!
