Un-Event to Support Women in Recovery

UNATTEND the UNEVENT and you can tell your friends and family that you are going to a fundraiser, but secretly you can be doing whatever you want, like staying at home in your PJs and not feeling guilty about it.

This year, McDougall House is unable to host our “Spirit of Spring Fashion Show”. Instead, we have created the UNEVENT to help support McDougall House and the important work we do in the community.

Tickets

Tickets to the UNEVENT can be purchased for $100 per ticket. You can purchase a single ticket, or invite your friends to fill your virtual table, and purchase multiple tickets. There is no official date for the UNEVENT, so you can pick any date and donate without leaving your home.

Donate to Support Our Daily Costs

Donations of any denomination are much needed and appreciated. For instance, you can support our program and offset the client’s cost of $40 for a one-day stay; $280 for a one week stay; or $1,200 for a one-month stay. We need your financial gifts to continue to provide our programs to the people who need them the most.

When you make a donation online through ATB Cares, McDougall House receives 100% of your donation through this site and ATB will match up to 15% of your contribution. Click here to donate!

Q: What is the point of this?
