CPC Halifax Cornwallis is probably best known by many in the community for the Fundraising events we do each year:
Progress Women of Excellence dinner in the fall where we celebrate extraordinary women, whose achievements have made a powerful impact on our community. From this event we’ve raised over $1 Million for Phoenix Youth Programs – a long-term shelter for homeless and at-risk youth.
Progress Girls Night Out – an all women’s event we hold in the spring with the proceeds going to our charities of choice.
In the past these causes have included HomeBridge Youth Society, Adsum House, and Nova Scotia Special Olympics.
Our members also coordinate smaller fundraising events throughout the year that raise money for our charities of choice.
Not only do these funds go to our charities of choice, but they also allow us to help out individual community members in need. For example, if one of our members knows of a single mother who has lost her job and isn’t sure if she’ll be able to make this month’s rent, we have the ability to help on a case by case basis.
