ATHENA'S PARTY IN THE HAMPTONS RAISED $15,000
FOR THE LEADER OF TOMORROW SCHOLARSHIP FUND!
THANK YOU FOR GIVING EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY TO YOUNG WOMEN IN MANITOBA.
Athena Leadership is thrilled to announce the success of its second annual fundraising event - raising $15,000 for the Leader of Tomorrow Scholarship. This year’s fundraiser, Athena's Party in the Hamptons presented by Birchwood Volvo Jaguar Land Rover, transformed Manitoba Hydro place into a classic Hamptons party, where over 400 guests enjoyed an evening of décor, drinks and dancing. The evening included live entertainment with a hip hop performance, luxury vehicle exhibits, oyster bar, high-value auction, and the return of the popular “selfie” station, which this year was a gorgeous cascading gold wall. Funds raised from Athena's Party in the Hamptons directly supports Athena's Leader of Tomorrow scholarship fund, held within The Winnipeg Foundation. Established in 2013, the fund supports young women in Manitoba exhibiting high potential, community leadership, and the financial need to further their education.
Sincere appreciation and thanks is extended to all sponsors, who generously supported Athena's Party in the Hamptons and helped generate $15,000 toward the Leader of Tomorrow fund. Without strong community involvement, events and opportunities like this could not occur.
Special thanks to Event Chair Kayla Dickin and the talented committee comprised of Athena Leadership members Lindy Norris, Lana Bakun, Sharenda Wiebe, Ashley Monette, Erin Bartlett, Dana Chappellaz, Kelsey Noakes, Danielle Tkachyk, Andrea Ladouceur, Laura Wittig, and Kristen Enright. Photos from the event, generously provided by Casey Nolin Photography, will be posted shortly. Check back soon!
