Thank you to everyone who came out to participate in 2019’s Dress for the Cause Day on October 25, hosted by Team Avisar! It was great to see a sea of pink and all the baked goodies in support of a worthwhile cause.
Congratulations to our toonie toss winner, J. Dyck! We hope you enjoy your $50 Willowbrook gift certificate – spend it wisely.
We raised $1,895 at our event on Friday, bringing our total fundraising efforts so far to $8,195!
In case you missed it, this October, Avisar joined Dress for the Cause with a goal of raising $5,000 for the Breast Cancer Society of Canada in support of our Client Relations Manager, Tanya Lind. Tanya was diagnosed with breast cancer in early 2019, underwent cancer-fighting surgery in the spring and began Phase 2 of her chemotherapy treatment in October. She has attacked her cancer journey head-on – taking charge by shaving her head, rocking a wig, revamping her wardrobe and continuing to attend the concerts, baseball games and community events she loves. She is fighting to win and Team Avisar is on her side!
Even though we have officially exceeded our $5,000 goal we’re going to continue to fundraise until the end of November. You can still drop by the office to purchase Avisar chocolates (3 chocolates for $4). Online donations to Team Avisar can still be made too.
Remember that the team that raises the most funds during Dress for the Cause will win an additional $5,000 donation to their local cancer centre. Team Avisar is currently the #1 fundraising team in Canada, and we would like to keep it that way!
