Women’s House Serving Bruce and Grey will be hosting their annual International Woman’s Day celebration on March 8th, 2016 at the Lakeshore Recreation Centre in Port Elgin. Doors will open at 5:15 pm.
“This year is the 30th Anniversary for Women’s House and we want to celebrate all year long!” states Tiffany Love of Women’s House. “Having these two wonderful comedians from Yuk Yuk’s will make for a super fun night- and Judy Croon and Martha Chaves both bring a lot of laughs to the table!”
Judy Croon is a comedian, MC, motivational humourist, radio broadcaster, author and proud to never having been in jail.
She has been the opening act for Joan Rivers, Wynonna Judd, Robert Klein, Weird Al, Dionne Warwick and Anne Murray. Her specials have appeared on NBC, CBS, CTV and The Comedy Network. Judy is the creator and host of "Laughlines" and "Stand Up for The Girls" which have raised over $650,000 for breast cancer research.
Martha Chaves has been a professional comedian, touring as a headliner for more than seventeen years. Her infectious, candid style, and her natural ability to relate to any audience have made her very popular at clubs, colleges, festivals, fundraisers, and corporate functions.
Martha is a veteran of a dozen Montreal’s Just For Laughs Comedy Festival. She has also performed at the Halifax Comedy Festival, the Winnipeg Comedy Festival, the Edmonton Comedy Festival, The Toronto People’s Festival, and El Festival del Humor in Colombia, to mention a few.
Last year, the trivia game was so much fun that it will be returning! Brush up on your Women’s House knowledge for a chance to win an Apple IPad Mini donated by Bruce Power. You can also bid on the amazing items in the live and silent auctions!
The Woman of Distinction Ceremony is always a staple of this event. We are currently still looking for nominations at this time- please nominate that outstanding woman in your community!
This event is a celebration, and is also one of the major fundraisers for Women’s House. The purchase of a ticket is not only going to provide you with an afternoon filled with great food and entertainment, but also the chance to support a worthy cause in our community. Women’s House has had some difficulty meeting fundraising targets this fiscal year and would appreciate your support with this major fundraiser.
Tickets for this event are $50 each and available at United Way in Owen Sound, Lakeshore Recreation in Port Elgin, Gordon’s Pharmasave in Kincardine or by calling Tiffany at Women’s House at (519)396-9814 ext.225.
