Cock­tails for a Cause, SEPTEM­BER 28

Vancouver Magazine - - Play -

Van­cou­ver-based Cause We Care Foun­da­tion hosted its an­nual tip­ple fest at the up­scale D6 rooftop lounge lo­cated in the Dou­glas Ho­tel. Founder An­drea Thomas Hill wel­comed a well-heeled crowd to her posh cock­tail party to sup­port sin­gle moms in need and their kids. The pre­miere of the char­ity's new­est video, pro­duced by the Juice Group, and the $165,000 col­lected in do­na­tions had ev­ery­one rais­ing their glass. Since 2007, the vol­un­teer out­fit has pro­vided ham­pers, as­sisted fam­i­lies with day-care costs and con­trib­uted to the con­struc­tion of the YWCA Cause We Care Home, a 21-unit sub­si­dized hous­ing com­plex in Van­cou­ver's Strath­cona neigh­bour­hood for low-in­come sin­gle moth­ers. Since the event's in­cep­tion, Hill and her posse of in­flu­en­tial and en­trepreneurial women have raised more than $3.4 mil­lion to help moms break the cy­cle of poverty.
