SWESA members and friends volunteered at a casino this month. We’ll post the number later for 2022 but we have high hopes. A big THANK YOU goes out to the all the volunteers – from the Board and Tony Montrose, Co-Chair Fundraising Committee.

In 2019 over $70,000 went to supporting programs at SWESA!   Volunteers were given training at the time of their shift with meals and refreshments provided. Consider supporting SWESA by volunteering for a shift at our next casino. CLICK HERE to say you’re willing to be asked to volunteer next time.

Annual Appeal

Start date: October 1, 2022
End date: November 30, 2022
Time: 12:00 am - 12:00 am

Every fall , SWESA’s major fundraiser is a campaign where SWESA members, Friends of SWESA, community and business organizations and the general public are invited to donate. In the last two years, we have raised almost $80,000. Critical to our success in the past has been:
a very generous Lead Donor
and
Friends of SWESA who donated early to match that initial amount.
To find out more about becoming a Friend of SWESA or our next year’s Lead Donor, please contact us at treasurer@swesa.ca

John and Teri Ellis celebrated their Wedding Anniversary with a donation to the 2021 Appeal.
