International Women’s Day Lunch

March 8 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm $50.00
  • This event has passed.

Join us for a delicious lunch buffet on Friday, March 8th to celebrate International Women’s Day at The GrandWay. While you enjoy your meal, you’ll be part of an intimate conversation with our very own Katie Giddy, VP, Grand River Ag Society, The GrandWay, and Grand River Raceway, who will share her personal story about having “No Time for Cancer”. She’ll take us through navigating the personal aspect of being told “you’re not going to work tomorrow” and how that affects moms, caretakers, and those battling their medical concerns while managing their careers.

Sally Litchfield, Katie’s best friend, will be our Emcee guiding us through the conversation, with humour of course, of how “inconvenient Katie’s cancer was for her”…If you know Sal and Katie’s relationship, this will be a real, but funny conversation about life, family, and how it intersects with your career.
