Golfers – Save the Date – Thursday June 2, 2016
The Zonta Club of Guelph invites you to register for the 19th Annual Betty Thompson Golf Classic. This event was inspired by the Kitchener Club in honour of Betty Thompson, a member of their club and a local TV celebrity who died of breast cancer in 1992. In the past eighteen years, the tournament has raised over $428,000. Don’t golf? Please join us for a night in Paris, France, with Dinner, Wine Tasting & Silent Auction.

Birthing Kit Assembly
In November, our Club partnered with the Cambridge Zonta Club and community friends to assemble 1000 birthing kits delivered to World Vision for distribution in third world countries. This simple tool has proven to improve health outcomes both for mothers and babies at the time of birth. One kit contains a plastic drop sheet, sterile gloves, gauze and ties, a razor blade, and slice of soap.
This biennium, Zonta International calls on parents, educators, administrators, law and policy makers to address PREVENTION OF ROOT CAUSES THROUGH EDUCATION and to facilitate effective mechanisms that will ensure ERADICATION of VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN once and for all.
