Fall Fundraiser

1984: An 80s Social + Skills Auction

  • October 17, 2019, 7:00pm – 12:00am
  • The Good Will Social Club, 625 Portage Ave.

$20 Bring all your friends! Tickets purchased online will be held for you at the door.

$20.00

Get into the 1984 vibe! Come apocalyptic or Flash Dance. Feeling Orwellian? No problem. Disco? See you on the dance floor. Get meat-shouldered on those shoulder pads and get social with the MAWA community!

Mentoring Artists for Women’s Art was founded in 1984, making this our 35th anniversary. What better way to mark the occasion than with an old-fashioned social celebrating our roots? There will be 80s+ tuneage supplied by DJ Callie Lugosi and DJ Mensrea, snacks, a 50/50 draw and amazing skills auction prizes. Where else can you bid on the truly weird things that MAWA supporters know how to do?

1984 is being held in support of MAWA’s Legacy Fund at The Winnipeg Foundation. Our aim is to grow this pot of money so we will be able to use the annual interest to pay for the Foundation Mentorship Program in perpetuity. An exciting and ambitious goal! Already, thanks to your support, the fund has grown from less than $500 ten years ago to over $100,000 today. By working together, we achieve so much.

To make this fundraiser a success, we need your skills! If you have a talent to share or an experience for us to auction, fill out this form or contact Alison at info@mawa.ca. Willing to deliver a pot of your surprising stroganoff? Do some genealogical research? Teach someone how to change their oil or change up their hairstyle? We’d really appreciate your contribution.
