What is QueenPins?
QueenPins was started in Spring 2016 by a group of women from Halifax with the mission to raise funds for a local cause while networking with other powerful women. The event came together at lightning speed. In fewer than 30 days the event was planned, marketed, and executed. The inaugural fundraiser in May hosted over 100 women business leaders and raised funds for the Canadian Women’s Rugby Team. Since then the QueenPins have hosted three social networking events as well as fundraised in support of Junior Achievement, Habitat for Humanity Nova Scotia and Eating Disorders Nova Scotia.
QueenPins is networking with a purpose. Yes, we get out there and make business and personal connections. But we believe it’s just as important to showcase local business owners at exhibitor booths, host inspiring and educational speakers, and give back to the community. Our events are a platform for women and the people who support them to network, learn, and engage while supporting local causes.
We use the word “cause” for a reason. The causes QueenPins chooses to support do not have to be charitable organizations. We want to help a cause, big or small, that makes an impact on our local community. We consider how each cause demonstrates values of diversity and inclusion, and which would most benefit from increased exposure to the business community and potential donors.
A representative from the chosen cause will be asked to sit on the QueenPins committee for the planning and execution of the fundraising event.
The submission review committee might have questions, so ensure you have a contact person who can respond in a timely manner.
