A bloomin' great cause for International Women's Day

Tue, Feb 10, 2015

Metro Vancouver, B.C. Great food, phenomenal coffee, engaging conversation and inspirational stories – all for a bloomin’ great cause.

That’s Project Bloom, and it’s coming once again to South Delta on March 6, courtesy of the Kwantlen Polytechnic University Foundation.

KPU Foundation’s annual Project Bloom supports International Women’s Day by raising money to support an endowment fund for women who wish to attend Kwantlen Polytechnic University. One hundred per cent of proceeds from the event go toward the endowment.

Set for March 6 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Harris Barn in Ladner, Project Bloom encourages collaboration and community between women. Guests have a unique opportunity to be inspired by brilliant, ambitious and dedicated women in an environment that supports growth and continuous learning. It is the mission of Project Bloom to serve as a platform to empower one another through the meaningful exchange of experiences and expertise.

The event’s goal is to foster partnership, strategic networking and purposeful fundraising efforts that will help women grow their cohort of powerful resources and support. The day is dedicated to ordinary women whose acts of courage and determination have played an extraordinary role in their communities.

Project Bloom brings together inspirational community leaders as keynote speakers. This year’s keynote speaker is Tamara Vrooman, president and CEO of Vancity. The event is emceed by CTV’s Keri Adams.

Tickets are $125 and available by calling 604-599-2010 or visiting kpu.ca/foundation/project-bloom. You can also check out Project Bloom on Facebook at facebook.com/kpuprojectbloom
