A group of passionate volunteers has brought the Sea-to-Sky community together in Whistler to celebrate the United Nations-recognized International Day of the Girl each year since 2013. The five previous events each motivated and inspired a sold-out theatre of 250 people and collectively raised over $15,000 for charity partners – <http://hswc.ca/> Howe Sound Women’s Centre and <http://www.onehorizon.net/> One Horizon. Both organizations focus on the protection, education, and entrepreneurial support of girls and women and we are proud to partner with them again for 2018.
Special thanks to the volunteer team that make this happen each year: Maja Ronneberger, Kevani Macdonald, Danielle Kristmanson, and Dee Raffo.
