When Phoenix recently approached me and asked if they could nominate me for a Progress Women of Excellence Award, I was surprised and to be honest, slightly embarrassed. Me? a woman of excellence? Like most Canadians, and a lot of women I know, we don’t like to talk about ourselves or brag. But, I have to tell you, that secretly, deep down, I am pretty happy about this honour and will find out in October if I’ve been accepted.
The awards are presented by the indefatigable women from the Canadian Progress Club Halifax Cornwallis, who have, to date, raised over $1 million for Phoenix. If I had a million dollars, I’d give it all to Phoenix as well. Instead of cash though, we donate our time and knowledge and have produced their annual donor report for the past three years.
If you’d like have a blast while supporting this great cause, you can get tickets here. Hey. I might even see you there too.
