Toronto, ON – On March 8, 2020, International Women’s Day, L’Oreal Paris partnered with The Omni King Edward Hotel to host the remarkable Women of Worth Gala. This display of female empowerment, celebrated ten Canadian women who have gone above and beyond to work selflessly to serve their communities.
“Today is amazing! It’s overwhelming, I’m so honoured,” Hayles enthused. “Because I know that out of 300, very worthy organizations, I’m one of the ten.”
The L’Oreal Women of Worth program also rewarded each honouree with a $10,000 grant to help them continue to volunteer their time and boost their efforts as they go on to elevate their communities, and find beauty in giving back.
