Update on Cornerstone’s Annual Garden Party

This past year, our Princeton Capital Campaign for a new home has been such a great expression of community support.

We have been working hard as an organization, planning, preparing and fundraising for the Princeton project that will give a home to 42 more women in Ottawa. In light of this, we have decided to not host our Cornerstone Garden Party this year.

However, we will be offering a brand new event and we hope you will join us. The Cornerstone Celtic Kitchen Party will take place June 15, 2018. Tickets are available here.

Also, we invite you to join our online communications list to keep up to-date about our Princeton Celebration and opening of the new building this fall.

Thank you for your friendship and support. Cornerstone Housing for Women
