SACHA has a lot of people to thank for this year’s Take Back the Night.
There is not many words that can describe our TBTN committee volunteers. Amazing and incredible are a couple but don’t come close to the true awesomeness of these women. We start meeting and organizing in the spring and work all summer long.
Volunteers can be found asking local businesses for donations, coordinating volunteers, taking on promoting the event, marching at the Labour Day Parade, putting up posters around Hamilton, discussing poster and t-shirt design at a committee meeting, assembling buttons, cutting up handbills, inviting local organizations to table at the event.
Thank you to the Take Back the Night organizing committee for the hours that you spend on the event and for being creative strong women that we truly admire.
Take Back the Night would not be able to happen without your work.
Thank you to the volunteers who came in to SACHA to make the amazing patches this year!
Thank you to the over forty volunteers who help make the event run smoothly. These folks do everything from carrying giant puppets to serving the food at the end of the night.
Thank you to our performers for showing us your talents and leading us in amazing activities. We wouldn’t have henna tattooing, laughter yoga, Zumba or aerialists without you.
And lastly, thank you to our sponsors who donate money, food or goods to us. Without them we would not be able to afford the cost of putting on TBTN and we would not have any food to share at the end of the evening.
Please make a point of letting these folks know that we appreciate their support of Take Back the Night:
