Beach Days for the Best part. 2
Hello Friends! It is September again, and this month is ovarian cancer awareness month. Last year Everyone was so amazing and the beach party raised over $2,000. The team we are part of, Margie’s Gang, raised over 20,000! A new record.
Last year was so much fun and such a success, I say we should do it again. Saturday, Sept 9th at Ward’s Island, I want to celebrate all you amazing people who contributed to the cause these last three years (and anyone you would like to bring).
To donate please visit the website, it means so much to so many. I hope you all will contribute and attend. Feel free to donate as much as you can, the sky is the limit. A minimum donation of $20 so we can make a real impact and get the ball rolling.
If you are unable to attend, I hope you still consider donating. Every bit helps and I know the men and women of Margie’s Gang will be blown away to see so much support from a gang of spirited youths in Toronto.
Please come and show your support! Bask in the glory of great company, and pay homage to those who made us this way.
Day of details are as follows:
Show up whenever you like, It's an all-day affair, come and go as you please. There will be sports, drinks, music, and shade. I will be getting there around 10 a.m. to set up.
The spot is at the end of the beach at Ward’s Island. Last year we did Gibraltar and it's a bit of a hike. Ward’s is a lot closer to the Ward’s Island ferry and is a lovely spot. We will be set up near the end, so look for the gazebo.
Background info on the cause and why it means so much:
As some of you know we lost Mum to ovarian cancer in 2015. In the final years of her life, she dedicated all her energy to raising awareness and funding for research. She was able to raise over $100,000 to fight one of the deadliest, and most under-researched cancers women face today.
This is a fundraising event for Margie’s Gang, a group of Mum’s friends and colleagues who started the organization to raise money for Ovarian Cancer Canada. This amazing group of men and women all worked in the Foreign Service and have held events in Mum’s honour across the world. From walks in Ottawa to galas in Hong Kong and Nairobi, these amazing people have worked tirelessly to keep the spirit alive.
Let's add our own spirits to the cause and make a splash!
