CWAVS Embrace Virtual Auction
Thank you for coming to our 2021 fundraising auction!! Pretty much everything has changed this year, except for CWAVS' full-on commitment to the safety and wellbeing of women, children and families in the Cowichan Valley. Our doors have been open every day since the COVID-19 pandemic started, providing COVID-safe kids groups and art therapy sessions for moms, and trauma-informed counselling for kids and their parents.
Your personal donations and business sponsorships have helped to keep women and children safe during a very dangerous time. Your caring and support for the most vulnerable people in Cowichan Valley has made an incredible difference in many, many lives. Thank you.
And now - time to shop! The EMBRACE Auction is live until 8PM on May 8th.
