This year we celebrated the 20th anniversary of The Mane Event - a Hairstyling and Beauty Extravaganza in support of The Teresa Group. We also welcomed our new event sponsor, Redken Canada
The event took place at the L’Oreal Academy at 20 Richmond Street East from 10am to 4pm
Volunteer stylists washed, cut and styled – all to support children living with and affected by HIV and AIDS.
Not only did we offer salon services at the event, but there was also a large silent auction packed with incredible items, a raffle with prizes such as an iPad mini, valuable jewelry and a large Redken product gift bag with over 40 items. Volunteers from MAC Cosmetics offered make up sessions. The day is a buzz of activity and fun and clients left feeling wonderful – inside and out.
The Mane Event committee was led by Heidi and Stracey, our long-time supporters who are the co-owners of LIFT Salon and Spa.

The Teresa Group Achieves Accreditation from Imagine Canada’s Standard Program
May 31st 2016 – The Teresa Group today announces that it has been
accredited under Imagine Canada’s national Standards Program. With this
achievement, we join a growing community of more than 175 organizations
dedicated to operational excellence.
The Standards Program is a Canada-wide set of shared standards for
charities and nonprofits designed to strengthen practices in five
fundamental areas: board governance; financial accountability and
transparency; fundraising; staff management; and volunteer involvement.
“We are thrilled to be recognized for our commitment to
accountability, transparency and good governance” says Board President,
“It’s no small feat for an organization to earn Standards Program
accreditation,” says Bruce MacDonald, President and CEO of Imagine
Canada. “It’s a rigorous, peer-reviewed process that is meant to build
public trust and confidence in the charitable sector. These
organizations take accountability and operational transparency very
seriously. We’re glad to have them on board.”
Investment in Donor Trust
The goals of Imagine Canada’s Standards Program are to increase the
transparency of charities and nonprofits, and to strengthen public
confidence in individual organizations and the sector as a whole. Trust
is the foundation for what matters to us, our stakeholders and those who
support us. Accredited organizations invest in what matters: trust.
Transparent, peer-review process
Our policies and procedures in the five areas of compliance were
evaluated by a group of volunteers from the sector, and were found to be
compliant with the Standards Program.
“As a small organization, rooted in the community, we recognize how
important it is to be accountable not only to our donors but also to the
children and families we work with and the partners who share our
vision and mission” says Executive Director, Nicci Stein.
