Shopping for a cause
The annual fundraising event puts a spotlight on local business women and entrepreneurs with proceeds going towards the Lakeshore General Hospital Foundation
Here’s a chance to have a night out, shop for yourself or family all while raising money for a good cause. The eighth annual Shopping from the Heart event will take place on Thursday, May 9, 2019 at the Hampton Inn & Suites in Dorval from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
The event, organized by Montreal mom and entrepreneur Julia Chiarella-Genoni, gives local businesswomen a chance to showcase their products and network with other like minded individuals. The night will be hosted by local radio personality Donna Saker from 92.5 The Beat.
"We really want to put the spotlight on women," says Chiarella-Genoni. "We want to let them know that they are important."
In addition to the shopping, there will be a pampering lounge with chair massages, manicures and mini blowdrys, a photo booth by Kreative Memories complete with props to take pictures, and a silent auction and raffle table full of prizes including four tickets to Walt Disney World and a $2000 gift card to Mobilia. There will also be hors d'oeuvres and a sweet table.
Tickets cost $20 and the first 100 tickets sold receive a VIP grab bag that includes goodies from different sponsors. Proceeds from the evening will go to the Lakeshore General Hospital Foundation.
The Hampton Inn & Suites is located at 1900 route Transcanadienne in Dorval.
