A boost for Breast Cancer Society of Canada
On Oct. 19, Evergreen Home for Special Care held a fundraiser called Dress for the Cause to raise money for the Breast Cancer Society of Canada. Staff and residents all dressed in pink for the day. Pink breast cancer ribbons were sold for a loonie, and participants took ‘selfie’ photos for a toonie and posted the selfies throughout Evergreen. Evergreen also held a breast cancer awareness program to educate members of the Evergreen community. This program was followed by a bake sale and a social. Cake and refreshments were served while one staff member cut her hair and two other staff members shaved their beards to help bring in donations for this worthy cause. At the end of the day, Evergreen Home for Special Care raised $1120.30 for the Breast Cancer Society of Canada.
