Photography by Catherine Simone Photography.

The WBN Board of Directors and the WBN & YWCA Gala and Auction planning committee would like to thank everyone who contributed to the success of the WBN Holiday Gala & Auction. 

This includes emcee Tracey Ormond, auctioneer Suzy Dunkley, table hosts, appetizer sponsors, those of you who provided roses, truffles, and fudge; all WBN and YWCA volunteers, members and community businesses who donated auction items, rose sellers, greeters, moving truck and helpers, Lisa Mallette and the team at The Holiday Inn Peterborough-Waterfront; and Erica Brier for sharing her touching story with us and why the YWCA Crossroads Shelter is an incredible support to women and children who are fleeing abuse.

To our WBN members and guests, may this Christmas end the present year on a cheerful note and make way for a fresh and bright New Year. Here’s wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
