Elmwood’s vision is to be the most innovative girls’ school in Canada and to operate at the forefront of girls’ education globally. Now, more than ever, women are at the centre of the social, political and economic dialogue, acting with courage and integrity in the face of challenge and leading change.
The "Hear Us Roar" Gala was a tremendous success for our school!
We welcomed 260 people to our 1920s themed speakeasy and supper club and raised a record-breaking $450,000 to support our scholarship program and to renovate our Visual Art Studio this summer. Thank you to everyone who attended and sponsored the Gala, and congratulations to everyone who was involved in making it such a success.
Thank you to our incredible 2019 Gala Committee– Co-chairs Antonia Betts and Aileen Conway and parent volunteers from every grade– for planning every detail so beautifully and creating an atmosphere worthy of Gatsby himself.
Thank you also to our Gala Patron, Jamilah Taib Murray '82, for her unwavering support of the School, as well as our Cash Call Matching Families, Kelly and Peter Hudson and Whitney Fox and Dan Goldberg. Also, a special thank you to our Diamond Sponsors, Janice and Tim Saunders. Thanks to such philanthropic leadership and the support of so many of the Gala guests, we are poised for great things.
