A boost for Breast Can­cer So­ci­ety of Canada

Valley Journal Advertiser - - NEWS -

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.
