Walk for a Cure

We attended an evening fundraiser last night here in the Bay, Women in Action Steps of Hope fundraising campaign benefiting the Alberta Cancer Foundation.  For $5.00 you received a door prize ticket, your choice of tea, coffee or hot chocolate, a homemade delicious treat and an evening of music and fun.

In honour of the women who are dealing with cancer or have lost their life to this disease I thought I'd blog in pink. 

Our friend Angela organized this event and as per usual she did an amazing job with the help of some dedicated volunteers.  Latitude 69, the band Craig plays in donated their time for the evening.  Many people in the community baked their favorite dessert for the event and Angela made these fantastic posters, don't know where she finds the time to do everything. The event raised over $5500.00 last night with some amazing door, silent auction and toonie prizes.  Not bad for a small community of 1600 people.  

There is a group of ladies that are walking from Bay Chimo to Cambridge Bay to help raise money.  They will leave the beginning of May and hoping to return to Cambridge Bay mid-May.  I believe the distance is approx. 200kms,  I wish them a safe journey. 

Talk soon!
