Umbrellas for Change: The Ann Davis Art Contest is an online art competition where participants will decorate an Ann Davis red umbrella and upload a picture to the online contest gallery. Winners will be selected through public vote in August. There will be prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners, as well as randomly-selected participation prizes.

By transforming 150 red umbrellas into works of art, “Umbrellas for Change” aims to raise funds and awareness for those in our community who aspire to transform their lives and live free of abuse. This contest also aims to foster creativity and collaboration in the Chilliwack community by bringing people together with a fun activity for a good cause. Donations of 20$ or more get you an Ann Davis red umbrella, entry to the online competition, and an automatic chance to win cool prizes.
