Queen of Craft brew to support GWWIC

September 16, 2021

Guelph wellington Women in CrisisQueen of Craft has been raising money for Guelph Wellington Women-In-Crisis through events and fundraising initiatives for the past 8 years, and have raised nearly $50,000 to support the important work they do to help women and children in our community live free of violence. When the opportunity arose to include Queen of Craft's first-ever award-winning brew, Spice Odyssey Chai Latte Stout, to our most recent LCBO release, it was an overwhelming "YES!" This year's Spice Odyssey will be included in Welly's Bootique Mixer, now widely available at LCBO locations across Ontario, or separately online and in the Welly retail store with 25 cents from each can sold donated to GWWIC. This is a brew that is not only delicious, but also makes a difference.

Tonight Guelph Wellington Women-In-Crisis is hosting their annual event (virtually), Take Back the Night. Take Back The Night is the earliest worldwide effort to combat sexual violence and violence against women. It is estimated that 1 in 3 women will experience sexual violence in their lifetime and Indigenous women, women of colour, women with disabilities and gender-diverse and 2SLGBTQIA+ individuals experience the highest rates of sexual violence. Since 1987, Guelph-Wellington Women in Crisis has been hosting this event to spark conversations and community solidarity to end gender-based violence. This year’s event will be going virtual on September 16th at 6:30pm on Facebook Live to deliver you a night of performances and powerful words from community activists, survivors and allies.
