The Zonta Club of Oakville is celebrating International Women’s Day (March 8) with the installation its popular arch in downtown Oakville.
The arch, which will be up from March 2-13, helps create awareness for International Women’s Day.
The theme for this year’s club campaign is “Break the Bias.” The aim is to help promote a world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination towards women both globally, and in the community.
The Zonta Club has been building community awareness for International Women’s Day since its inception in 1973.
In the last two years, the club raised over $75,000 for the Oakville Hospital Foundation at its sold-out galas.
“International Women’s Day has always been an important event for the Zonta Club of Oakville,” said Catherine Bobesich, Vice President of Zonta Club of Oakville and marketing chair. “With the current pandemic and social distancing, our club has had to rethink how we can still celebrate women while supporting women’s charities.
“The installation of the arch is an impactful, fun and creative way to celebrate the women who make our community extraordinary.”
The Zonta Club of Oakville is made up of a small but vibrant group of professional women, that work together to assist women in the Halton community and internationally.
The organization works with charitable partners to provide emergency housing, financial aid, educational support, and mental and physical services to women in need.For more on the Zonta Club of Oakville, visit zontaoakville.org.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies advertising
