On March 6th, 2009 a fundraiser was held in Montreal to raise money for two speaking events on March 16th and 17th–one, a lecture by Beverley Jacobs (President of NWAC), and the other a panel; presentation featuring Jacobs, Ellen Gabriel (President of QNW), Laurie Odjick, Beverley Tolley, and Sue Martin (all from families of missing and murdered women).
The fundraising event included beautiful music, performance art, storytelling, drumming, and a silent auction. The silent auction featured art by several very talented local woman artists.
