Women in arts and business join to support AGH

CoCreateHER is a movement; it partners creative women with businesswomen for the purpose of raising money so that other women may benefit. 

This month’s CoCreateHER campaign runs from February 8, 2020 to March 8, 2020 at 8008 Lingerie, 14 Mill Street in the magical community of Almonte, Ontario, Canada.


Creative Woman: Corry McClure is an abstract artist who enjoys challenging herself with different mediums, acrylic, watercolour and ink, and different art styles: landscape, impressionism, and primitivism. Corry has been painting since 2016 and enjoys the creative escape from her day to day activities as a consultant.

Business Woman: Kathy Duncan, owner of 8008 Lingerie since 2018, is passionate about French lace and providing women with comfortable bras. She is a dynamic businesswoman who enjoys supporting community initiatives that provide artists with a place to promote their art.

Women Beneficiary: Replacing outdated equipment and purchasing new technology are ongoing priorities for the Hospital and for our community. CoCreateHER is here to help the Obstetrical Unit & the DI Campaign to ensure that new technology is available. Early diagnosis is key for supporting women’s health.
