Vista is a proud program partner of June Dresses, a charitable initiative with United Way of Calgary that supports programs focused on empowering women. The last two weeks of June are officially upon us and we thought it is sharing a mid month June Dresses status report.
This is Vista’s second year as a program partner. 22 women participated in 2013’s June Dresses campaign and raised over $10,000. We expanded the program throughout Calgary in 2014 and response has been very positive. As of June 15, more than 300 participants had created personal pledge pages on www.junedresses.ca, raising over $30,000. Every dollar donated through June Dresses goes straight to United Way of Calgary and its All In for Girls initiative which aims to reduce the high school dropout rate among young women.
June Dresses runs until the end of the month and there is a Wrap Party scheduled for June 25.
