Island Ford’s Giving Plan: Cowichan Valley Women Against Violence

 

At Island Ford, we try to make sure that giving back is also fun. The latest charity to receive our financial support is the Cowichan Valley Women Against Violence organization. They hosted a masquerade and silent auction on October 28 at Arbutus Golf Club.

It was a fun night with dancing, masks, and incredible prizes, including a trip for two to Las Vegas to see the Canucks play the Golden Kings.

The Cowichan Women Against Violence Organization was started by a group of women as a crisis line. Over the last 37 years they have grown, literally with the purchase of Somenos House, and are providing support to approximately 1,000 women and children each year. They have many different programs for women and children, like Stopping the Violence, and the Children Who Witness Abuse program, as well as Horizons Pre-Employment.
