Women inspiring philanthropy in Scarborough
The members of the Scarborough Women of Philanthropy (SWOP) are blazing trails when it comes to creating new and innovative ways to advocate for better health care in Scarborough. This collection of dynamic and driven women work tirelessly to support their hospital, help to shape the landscape of Scarborough and pave the way to a better future in local health care. Coming from different backgrounds, cultures and walks of life, the group’s mission is a model of generosity, leadership and dedication which encourages women to celebrate their contributions to the community by raising money to support their hospital.
This group of diverse women hold regular networking seminars for the women of the community, host fundraising events and organize an annual signature event ‘Sip, Shop & Celebrate Women’ which has raised more than $130,000 for Scarborough and Rouge Hospital Foundation in its first three years.
The 2017 Sip, Shop & Celebrate event will be held on November 9 at the Guild Inn Estate. This exciting event provides guests with the opportunity to shop for the holiday season from local vendors, bid on a wide selection of beautiful auction items, and share a glass of wine with friends – all in support of Scarborough and Rouge Hospital.
Ticket and sponsorship information can be found at www.sipshopcelebrate.com.
