Saturday, June 20th
With the cancellation of many of our programs, Hollyhock is facing challenging financial times. Help us turn this shadow into light and come celebrate with us on solstice, the longest day of the year. This day-long virtual Hollyhock-a-thon will feature music, movement, and learning from many of our brilliant presenters and friends. See below for the schedule. This is a free event open to all, please register below.
You may also donate online in the form below. The money we raise from this event will provide the foundation for us to continue to be a beacon of hope and possibility at a time when it is most needed. Thank you for your support.
Our hope is to raise $200,000 from this event, which help us toward our goal of raising $1 million CAD by April 2021. This amount will ensure that Hollyhock remains resilient now and into the future; funding the essential work we are doing to support our community through our closure, as well as allowing us to re-emerge from the pandemic fully equipped to meet the rising challenges of today’s new world.
When we reach the following benchmarks, we will do a draw of all donors to give away a prize! Donate any amount for your chance to win.
