Due to COVID-19, YWCA Toronto will be postponing this year’s Women of Distinction Awards Gala. Although this decision was not easy to make we take the safety and health of our staff, Women of Distinction and guests very seriously. We thank all of our sponsors for their understanding and continued support. We will be rescheduling the event to Friday, September 11, 2020 and look forward to connecting with you about sponsorship, ticket sales and table purchases in the next few months. In the meantime, please take care of yourself and each other while staying safe and healthy.

YWCA Toronto’s Women of Distinction Awards Gala is our most significant fundraising event of the year, supporting 33 programs across Toronto, helping women and girls to achieve equality, economic sustainability and lives free from violence. Raising approximately $700,000 each year, including live audiences of 1,000 or more and a public reach in the tens of thousands, one of the primary reasons the event has achieved such success is thanks to our corporate and media sponsors.

Sponsorship opportunities are now available for our 40th anniversary Women of Distinction Awards Gala. For more information on sponsorship benefits and levels, please contact Amy Rice, Manager of Events, Corporate and Community Partnerships at arice@ywcatoronto.org or 416.961.8100 x361.
