CPC Halifax Citadel is probably best known by many in the community for the Fundraising events we do each year:
Progress Women of Excellence dinner in the spring where we celebrate extraordinary women, whose achievements have made a powerful impact on our community. From this event we’ve raised over $1.2 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 fall with the proceeds going to our charities of choice. It is a jam packed evening with entertainment, vendors, raffles, silent auction and lots of fun.
In the 2019-2020 Progress Year we will be supporting The Boys & Girls Club, Eating Disorders NS, Adsum for Women & Children, Avalon Sexual Assault Centers, Kids Help Phone as well as 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.
Sponsors - We are thankful for our partners in our community to help us to do our work helping those in need.
From BMO “At BMO we have a long history of actively supporting women – and our culture is one that is inclusive – where diversity is not about being open to one particular group or another – rather it is about being open to people in all of their diversity.
We also support the communities in which we work, as does the Canadian Progress Club – Halifax Citadel. This support starts with caring about our youth. Our future success is dependent on the health and well being of our youth. They are the back bone of our communities and with the help and support of the Halifax Citadel, these youth are better equipped to face life’s challenges successfully. We are proud of our long term involvement with this organization.”
