The 4th Annual Pink Shirt Day Ladies Luncheon raises over $45,000 to battle bullying

On Friday February 20th, 2015, the CKNW Orphans’ Fund held their 4th annual Pink Shirt Day Ladies Luncheon at the beautiful Blue Water Café in downtown Vancouver. Over 170 of the city’s most influential women were in attendance for this event hosted by Fiona Forbes and Karen Khunkhun. The event raised over $45,000 for Pink Shirt Day (over $830,000 has been raised since the campaign's inception), an anti-bullying campaign that funds programs and initiatives dedicated to preventing bullying and violence, and fostering healthy relationships.

Be sure to purchase your official Pink Shirt Day T-Shirt at London Drugs and wear on February 25th to take a stand against bullying. Click through to see some of that fantastic women that supported the cause.
