Bleep Cancer!

Hi Everyone,

I know it has been ridiculously long since I've posted anything (sorry!).  But I do finally have a post for you.

Last weekend Jeff and I hosted our very first F*@ck Cancer BBQ Fundraiser for the Cross Cancer Institute.  With both my parents receiving treatment there this year, we really wanted to raise funds so that this facility continues to have the best means of treating this disease.  

The theme for our BBQ was Lavender, the ribbon which represents all cancers.  We chose this colour as it best encompasses everyone's struggles with fighting the disease (whether it be a personal battle or watching loved ones fight on).  Everyone has a story and we really wanted to be inclusive.

Our goal was to raise $500 by throwing a small, backyard BBQ.  With a little over 30 attendees, we managed to raise over $1100.  We thank everyone who came out to support us, everyone who was able to donate, and everyone that helped with the event.  We would also like to thank the following business that donated door prizes and food:

Rocky Mountain Soap Company
William Lutsky YMCA
Custom Costumes
Madalayna Spa
Great Canadian Bagel
Adam from Smart Technologies

If you would like to make a donation, you can visit our fundraising page here (thanks!!!).

Here are a few pictures from the event.
