Like most charities, COVID-19 has presented some challenges to Zonta Club annual “Purses, Pies and Pinot” fundraiser. However, fundraising chair Heather Edwards says the pandemic will not put the brakes on the event. Rather they have decided that this year’s fundraiser will go virtual – hence the new branding, “Purses, Pies & Pinot @ Home.”
The event will feature an on-line auction where over 15 purses, all varieties of pies, and a number of other goodies. The event in support of Ovarian Cancer Canada takes place Friday, September 25th at noon.
Ovarian cancer is the most fatal women’s cancer. However, since symptoms are often vague, most women are not diagnosed until the late stages.
