Canadian Women's Club (CWC) is a social and charitable organization whose purpose is to bring together Canadian women, those with Canadian ties, and friends with an interest in Canada.
Philanthropy is a large part of our "raison d'être." We hold two fundraisers each year: a Silent Auction and Bake Sale in December and a Fashion Show in May. All proceeds raised benefit local charities. Twice yearly, we distribute funds in order to recognize organizations in each of these four Bay areas: North Bay, Peninsula, East Bay, and the city of San Francisco, reflecting our members' home communities.
Canadian Women's Club of the San Francisco Bay area was founded in 1965 by the wife of the Canadian Consul General in San Francisco. Since that time, we have grown from 18 original members to over 140 members today. Members come from throughout the Bay Area.
Luncheon meetings are held the second Wednesday of each month from October to June. Each luncheon program includes an informative and entertaining speaker from the Bay area. December and May are designated for fundraising — December with a Holiday Luncheon, Silent Auction and Bake Sale and the month of May with our Annual Spring Fashion Show Luncheon Fundraiser. Guests, including gentlemen, are welcome at all our events.
We alternate venues between the Basque Cultural Center, 599 Railroad Avenue, South San Francisco (January, March, May, November) and the Presidio Golf & Concordia Club, 8 Presidio Terrace, The Presidio, San Francisco (February, April, June, October, December).
If you are unable to attend noontime functions but wish to connect to Canadian Women in the Bay Area, please contact Canadian Women's Club 2.0. A new subgroup of the Canadian Women's Club, CWC 2.0 meets for regular events in San Francisco, the East Bay, and on the Peninsula. Past and future events include Canadian Thanksgiving dinner, Academy Awards viewing party, and Victoria Day tea.
We welcome Canadian women as well as those with Canadian ties and friends who express an interest in Canada.
