Red Ribbon Awards

(L-R) Sister Festivus Illuminata, Reverend Mother Diversity Rains, Sister Fancy Pants

The Sisters were invited guests at AIDS Vancouver's World AIDS Day - Red Ribbon Awards 2016!  (http://www.aidsvancouver.org/world_aids_day)  These are annual award given out by AIDS Vancouver to community members and organizations who have made significant contributions to the fight for AIDS health and care.  This year's recipients included Dr. Peter Centre, Oak Tree Clinic, A Loving Spoonful, Maxine Davis (Executive Director, Dr. Peter Centre), Dr. Julio Montaner and Dr. Michael O'Shaughnessy.  At the end of the Ceremony, the Sisters went on stage and presented a cheque to Brian Chittock, Executive Director, consisting of funds raised from the Grocery Bagging event from last week ($750) plus a donation from the Sister Fund, totalling $1750.

The participants were well dressed in many of their finer threads with red ribbons everywhere the eye could see.  Festivus had a beautiful pin on her jacket.  Diversity had 3 ribbons glued to her face with many more on her bib.  And Fancy had a mother-sized, sequined ribbon on her wimple.

To complete this AIDS Vancouver trifecta, the Sisters will be at their Holiday Grocery Drive on Tuesday, December 13, 2016.  http://www.aidsvancouver.org/holiday_grocery.
