As a student in grade 12, Stittsville resident, Eva Von Jagow, began a charity event called ALL THAT GLAM, a sale of gently-used jewelry and handbags to raise money for school breakfast programs in Nunavut. Now, four years later, the All That Glam Committee has donated over $100,000 to much-needed breakfast programs in Nunavut.
Now I am happy to share the 5th annual fundraiser which will take place at the Richcraft Recreation Complex from 8:00 Am – 2:00 PM in Kanata on Saturday, November 25th!
Tens of thousands of pieces of gently-used jewelry and brand-name handbags will be available and the silent auction features some beautiful designer bags or unique pieces of jewelry. One feature include this beautiful Innuit-inspired quilt that a group of 8 Ottawa women – ‘The Blockheads’ – created especially for DueNORTH for the purposes of raising money for All That Glam. The quilt will be raffled off ‘Toonie for a Ticket’ ($2). The draw date will be made on the day of the sale.
I highly encourage all residents to come out and support one Stittsville resident’s new annual tradition for a great cause.
