HIGHLIGHT OF CULINARY FUNDRAISER! Eat to the Beat – Roy Thomson Hall – Tuesday, October 16
Highlighted as one of Toronto's top 15 Food, Wine and Hospitality events by BizBash magazine, Eat to the Beat has raised more than $3.2 million for Willow.
"We are very proud that over 80% of the proceeds from Eat to the Beat come straight back to Willow," states Jeffrey Beach, Executive Director of Willow Breast Cancer Support Canada. "People supporting the event should know that their contribution has a direct and positive impact on individuals affected by breast cancer. They are helping to fund initiatives such as our toll-free helpline, training women so they can run support groups in their communities and developing innovative ways to provide support online so the people who need it have greater access that is not limited by office hours, time zones, cultural barriers or remote geographic locations."
In 2012 an estimated 22,900 people will be diagnosed with breast cancer in Canada. From the individual diagnosed, to their family, friends and caregivers, Willow provides free support and information today for those who cannot wait for tomorrow's cure.
