2017 Volunteer Appreciation Party

On August 9th, we celebrated the dedication of our volunteer community. We have a truly amazing and committed team of volunteers. Last year Dress for Success Vancouver had over 250 active volunteers who contributed over 15,000 hours to empowering women into the workforce. Thank you to each and every one of you for lending your time, your resources and your passion. You are all making a lasting impact on so many lives.

As part of the evening we had an award ceremony to recognize a few of the volunteers that have shown outstanding initiative and dedication to the Dress for Success Vancouver community. Congratulations to everyone who was nominated and to our the award recipient Val Johnson.
