Wine, Dine & Showtime 2022

Wine, Dine and Showtime is back - in person!

Our annual event is back to offer you one night to help ensure a future without violence.

It’s a tall order to be sure, but we are committed to believing survivors, always being an open door and listening ear and breaking down structural inequalities - and it’s all possible thanks to supporters like you.

Together, we can create a revolution that ends gender-based violence in London, for good.

If you have any questions or would like more information about opportunities to support Anova please contact

Heather Mackechnie at or 519-642-3003 ext 2253

Katherine Fischer

Katherine Fischer’s unique pop confessionals are the

medicine for when our hearts get sick, served with an

eccentric dose of sugar to help it all go down.

From coast to coast Katherine has played over 200 shows

from festival performances at Winnipeg Folk Festival and

main stage at Home County Music and Art Festival to living rooms with SOFAR Sounds. Her song "I Choose You" was featured on Amazon's "Best of 2020: Folk" playlist

To see her play, is to know her story and end the night as if parting from an old friend.
