On Tuesday, May 13th, my wife organized a huge fundraising event in support of the Sexual Assault Centre Kingston, featuring the talented Georgette Fry & the Shout Sister Choir and Sally Armstrong, a phenomenal Canadian speaker/journalist/author/human rights activist.  Here are some photos from the event, which took place at Grant Hall on Queen’s campus.  Catering was by Maria from Dream Come True Kitchen(she’s awesome) and sound/decorating by Q Design.  For information about the event, or the Status of Women committee of ETFO Limestone Local, please check out their website here.
