Little Phoenix Daycare Fundraiser a Huge Success
Victoria, B.C. – Ever community-minded, Victoria, B.C.-based Jane Logan, Sutton Group - West Coast REALTOR® with 30 years of residential real estate experience, is Chair of Women United™ Greater Victoria. On October 19, they organized a sold-out, virtual Fundraiser and Gin Tasting Event in support of the Little Phoenix Daycare, one of the first trauma-informed daycares in Canada. The funds raised contribute to the completion of the Little Phoenix Daycare, providing a safe haven for young children who are dealing with high levels of stress and trauma related to family violence, sexual, psychological and physical abuse and/or experiences such as living in a refugee camp.
“The engagement and generosity of the participants, along with the experienced mixologist and auctioneer, created a very active evening via Zoom and a fantastic end result of over $31,000 raised, exceeding our targeted goal of $25,000,” says Jane. All proceeds will help with the construction of the Little Phoenix Daycare, furnish it and fill the shelves with books and toys conducive to a therapeutic environment for children aged five and younger.
“A very entertaining auctioneer, Cam Drew, Managing Partner of ThermoProof Windows & Doors in Chemainus, B.C., elicited tremendous participation from attendees during the live auction,” says Jane. “In fact, most auction items sold for at least double their market value.”
As well, Mike Norbury, Beverage Director of the Nubo Group in Victoria, B.C., the ‘mixologist extraordinaire’ for the evening, hosted the Sheringham Gin tasting and shared his expertise and bartender tips and tricks with the guests.
Other memorable moments included a powerful presentation by Jane Taylor Lee, Executive Director of Family Services of Greater Victoria, who emphasized the importance of the Little Phoenix Daycare. For more information, visit https://uwgv.ca/families-in-need/.
