OTTAWA, Canada – Daughters of Penelope (DOP) Euphrosyne Chapter 292 hosted an exclusive in-store shopping event on December 8 at Ottawa’s Rideau Center Michael Kors designer store to benefit the Dave Smith Youth Treatment Center (DSYTC). The DSYTC, the chapter charity of the year, is a non-profit, live-in agency dedicated to helping youth and families across Ontario to overcome substance use and related issues by providing assessment, live-in treatment, and continuing care as well as family services. The evening’s special guest was Senior Director of Philanthropy Cindy Manor, who shared with guests her personal family experience with the DSYTC, how it helped her family and how she became involved.

The chapter thanked Michael Kors Manager Irina Djuric and her staff for hosting them in their beautiful store and for supporting the DOP’s charity with the generous 25% discount on purchases, the 10% of sales donation to the DSYTC and the $500 sweepstakes.
