MAWA’s Fall Supper is back … the dress-up culinary event of the year. This year’s theme is circus, whatever that means to you. Want an excuse to wear that clown nose? This is it! A dinner of deliciousness awaits you, with vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and meaty options. Featuring comedy by rib-tickling Lara Rae, tunes by roving accordion player Annemarie, fortune telling, billiards coordinated by Canadian Women’s Pool Master Gwen Armstrong, fussball, table tennis, dancing, a 50/50 draw and more! It’ll be a fun-packed evening for everyone! Plus, you can bid on some of the many skills possessed by the MAWA community. Last year, cat whisperer Bev Pike offered some pet therapy. Who knows what will be on offer this year?

Circus! is being held in support of MAWA’s Legacy Fund at the Winnipeg Foundation. Our aim is to grow this pot of money so we will be able to use the annual interest to pay for the Foundation Mentorship Program, ensuring that it will continue in perpetuity. An exciting and ambitious goal! Already, thanks to your support, the fund has grown from less than $500 nine years ago to almost $90,000 today. By working together, we can achieve so much.

To make this fundraiser a success, we need your skills! Willing to loan your pool for a party or offer a playdate with your pet python? Want to teach someone how to make remoulade or rewire a lamp? We’d really appreciate your contribution. If you have a talent to share or an experience for us to auction please follow this link and fill out the form. If you have any questions about the process contact Alison at or call 204-949-9490.
