Adam Olivero of Bruce Telecom produced a special 30th anniversary video for the Women's House.  "I have a daughter and we have to do this for our kids and to help end the violence against women."


Inspector Ken McCulloch of Saugeen Shores Police Service congratulated the Women's House on the work that they do to support victims of abuse in the community.  "As the police, we work hard to provide safety and security to victims and we need to rely on organizations such as the Women's House for providing counseling, housing and education.  It is a very important service and, unfortunately, one that is needed.  It is the support of the Women's House that encourages women to come forward and report incidents."

A final total raised at the event has not yet been finalized.
