We're excited to announce that Sarah Shandl has been nominated for a Metro Vancouver Women of Distinction Award for her work with Vancouver, we love you. Sarah and Vancouver, we love you have been strong supporters of CHV for many years.
All nominees are able to win the Connecting The Community Award. Determined by online votes, the winner will receive $10,000 to give to the YWCA program of her choice.
Here's where we need your help.
Sarah's decided to make the online voting process count for even more because, well, why not do more good when you can? For every minute you take giving her a vote, she's committing to give one minute of her time to volunteer in the community. One for one.

Recently at a Rights of Passage Community Dinner our young people created an amazing Asian themed dinner. The youth made everything seen from start to finish and they even did all the grocery shopping. The feast included miso soup, udon noodle soup and handmade sushi rolls.
A lot of work went into preparing the meal and the youth did amazing job. The youth and staff all agreed the results were delicious!
