Monday April 4th Ladies Who Lunch, Ottawa will hold special evening gathering at the NAC.
The sold out event will play host to the Chief, Vice Chief and a young person from the Cross Lake, native reserve in Manitoba, where a record number of young people have committed suicide.
Along with receiving support from the Ottawa Women's group, the representatives from the Reserve will be presented with a large donation of musical equipment, craft supplies and money for sports equipment, all collected here in Ottawa. The children on the reserve told Ladies Who Lunch that they need ways to occupy their time and their minds, which they hope will reduce the alarming suicide rate.
Donations still welcome at the Ladies Who Lunch Facebook page.
