Nuba Proudly Supports the Avalon Recovery Society

 Avalon Recovery Society is a small non-profit dedicated to providing support, education and resources to women in recovery from addiction. They operate three drop-in centres – Vancouver, North Shore and White Rock – where we provide; peer led support meetings, child minding, life skills workshops, resource information, and the opportunity to connect with other women as they build healthy networks of support. Avalon is the only organization of its kind in Canada and does not receive any government funding.     Runway for Recovery is a high tea and fashion show event scheduled for Sunday, October 27, at the Renaissance Vancouver Harbourside Hotel.  The event features local designers/stores along with a high tea, and silent auction. Proceeds from the event will benefit Avalon's Child Minding Program. The program is integral in assisting women through their recovery process. Many who attend support groups at their centres do not have the financial resources or family support to fulfill their child minding needs. Their childcare rooms are kid-friendly, interactive environments that enable the children to feel safe and comfortable during their time without their moms. Last year alone, over 1200 children took part in our program, while the centres experienced 30,000 visits from women.     Event Details Sunday, October 27 12:30pm Renaissance Vancouver Harbourside Hotel - 1133 West Hastings Tickets are $75 and can be purchased by calling 604.263.7177 or emailing nancyp@avaloncentres.org
