Public relations and corporate communications students in Centennial College’s postgraduate certificate program are hosting Gaming for Growth, a family fundraiser to help support Nellie’s, a shelter for women and children.
In Canada, 83 per cent of reported domestic violence attacks are against women.
Nellie’s was able to respond to more than 1,000 calls on their crisis hotline and provide shelter and food to 83 women and 35 children in 2015.
This event will happen on Wednesday, March 29 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Time Capsule Board Game Café, 2183 Danforth Ave.
The evening will feature appetizers, cocktails and games, including board games, ping pong, pool, foosball and an assortment of video games.
The funds raised will also help fund Nellie’s community assistance programs.
