With a span of 28 years and over $300,000 in fundraising, the Queens County Unit of Canadian Cancer Society is the definition of determined.
Given the devastating reach of all cancer diseases in this county alone, it is clear that making a difference is as important as ever. The Queens County Unit fundraising events do more than generate money for cancer research, they showcase our strong sense of community.
The first event is the fun for all ages “Curl For Cancer” which is celebrating 28 years at the Liverpool Curling Club. The bonspiel slated for Valentine’s Day Saturday Feb. 14 and you can enter until Feb. 12. Along with prizes for top fundraisers, there will be lucky prize draws and delicious offerings from the canteen. Entry is a mere $5 per person. From corporate teams to family teams, all are welcome, with select opportunities for individual entries.
March will see the “Daffodil Campaign” bloom across Queens County. This fundraising campaign has blossomed since its inception, a cumulative total of more than $50,000.
The 2015 fundraising season wraps up in April with the important “Door to Door” campaign. In the past 10 years alone over $100,000 has been raised by the Queens County Unit of the Canadian Cancer Society.
Cancer has touched virtually every family in Queens County, probably even yours. If you have even just a few hours to help, the Unit Team are eager to bring new volunteers into the fold. It feels good to do good and you will find yourself having quite a bit of fun in the process.
Chances are you already know at least one of the friendly volunteers.
