Dear Ms. Auch:

On behalf of all of us at the Calgary Women's Emergency Shelter and the Turning Points Dinner Committee, thanks you for your generous gift of private speed skating lessons for our silent auction held in conjunction with the annual Dinner. The auction raised $43,000 bringing the total proceeds for the event to $245,000.


Funds raised through the Dinner and auction support two of our programs, the Men's Crisis Service providing counselling to men who have been abusive and the Outreach Program which provides support to women after a Shelter stay.

Once again, thank you for your kind contribution. Your support makes a significant difference to many live impacted by the effects of domestic violence.


Karen, A. Blasť, Ph.D.
Executive Director
