Ten spectacular West Island women donated $10,000 each to West Island Community Shares (WICS) to participate in their event to end all events. Their $100,000 contribution represents much-needed support for the 41 community organizations that rely on WICS each year. In a new twist on their classic Red and White event, this year, these ten local businesswomen will be noted for their philanthropic contributions to the community.
The line up includes; Brigitte Garceau, Lawyer and Senior Partner, Robinson Sheppard Shapiro, Chantal Carrier, philanthropist, Eva Chalkiadakis, Development Manager, Small Business, Scotiabank, Lolita Guerrera, Vice-president, Commercial Markets/Retail, Consumer Services/Franchises, RBC, Frederica Jones, Regional Vice-President, West Island of Montreal, BMO, Roberta Lacey, Head of Marketing, Avon Canada, Teresa Broccolini, Director Property Management at Broccolini, Anna Mormina and Angela Martingnetti, Co-owners, Mfleurs and Rhonda O’Gallagher, Vice-President, Corporate Affairs, Pfizer Canada.
“Our ultimate goal is to have ten influential businesswomen give back $10,000 each to Community Shares as a statement of their endorsement to the wellbeing of our friends & neighbours,” read the WICS invite to participate.
The ladies will be speaking during the Red and White event next Monday, January 27 at 40 Westt. Tickets are available at the West Island Community Shares website.
