Another Fund Raiser

Last month, we were at another fund raiser for Sofia House, a second stage shelter for women and children escaping domestic violence. This was a little more sedate than last year's fashion show, but my son Nick and I did have to get dressed up so we could be ushers. He was considerably more popular with the ladies than I.


This year's show raised over $10,000 for Sophia House. Since the organization gets no government funding (which is a crime considering that our provincial government is wallowing in cash right now due to high commodity and oil prices), everything they make comes from private donations, organizations like the United Way, and fund-raising efforts.
