Courage Wisdom Success embodies the courageous strengths of women, the shared wisdom that they supportively offer, and how we joyfully celebrate success in all of its forms. We regularly organize a major fundraising event featuring a celebrity keynote speaker that brings together RWN members and leaders in the community in order to support our network objectives and to promote public awareness of RWN. Funds raised through CWS are given back to our membership by providing personal and professional development as well as networking opportunities.
Regina Women’s Network Annual Fundraiser Presents
Multi-Faceted, Canadian Superstar
Ms. Chantal Kreviazuk
Thursday, May 26, 2016 | 5pm-9:15pm | VIP Experience 9:15pm-10:30pm | Delta Regina and Casino Regina Show Lounge
My Life, My Music and the Power of Creativity
Kreviazuk believes that if inspirations are the pain and suffering and adversity of life, there is only a joyful after-taste if we take out the juicer and make lemonade! In this presentation, Chantal delves into times in her life when she felt most creative and explores the inspirations, the trials and results of the creative process. She shares her personal stories and infuses observations about her own path and natural flow. An inspiring night for all expressed through words and hit songs sung by or written by Chantal.
Multiple Juno Award winner Chantal Kreviazuk never considered a career in music until she began writing what would become her Platinum-selling debut album during recovery from a serious motorcycle accident in 1994. Under These Rocks and Stones was released to widespread acclaim in 1997, and Chantal has since become one of Canada’s most beloved Artists. With a string of distinguished albums and singles, Chantal’s drive to expand her artistry has led her to become a highly sought-after songwriter, having penned hits for Pink, Christina Aguilera, Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, and Drake, among many others.
While her professional achievements are significant, Chantal receives the greatest amount of joy at home where she raises her three sons – Rowan, Lucca, and Sal – with her husband, Raine Maida, front-man for Our Lady Peace. For Chantal, motherhood has breathed an authenticity into her life that inspires her to achieve new levels of self-discovery.
Having demonstrated an outstanding commitment to human rights causes – being avid supporters of War Child Canada among them – Chantal and Raine received the 2014 Allan Slaight Humanitarian Spirit Award for their longstanding dedication to the world community. In December 2014 the Governor General jointly appointed Raine Maida and Chantal Kreviazuk to the Order of Canada.
