Joelle's & JGS Fashion Show June 09 2015
On Monday, June 8 it was “Anchors Aweigh” as Joelle's and Jeff's Guyshop took over the amazing venue at the Royal Botanical Gardens for one of our spectacular Fashion Shows and Fundraisers. This show was the second of two events raising funds to support the purchase of a Digital Mammography Unit with Biopsy Attachment for Joseph Brant Hospital. This state of the art equipment takes x-rays of the breast using digital techniques, ensuring that the community has access to the best equipment and care impacting greatly those who are facing Breast Cancer Diagnosis.
We received an incredible amount of support from our staff, our committee members, local businesses, customers and our suppliers. RBC Royal Bank and the Grace Clinic were title sponsors for the evening and a slew of other businesses were involved to make the evening a huge success. Dr. Callista Phillips and Breast Cancer Graduate Diane Bentivegna were the featured speakers.
The highlight of the event was eleven “Breast Cancer Graduates” gracing the runway to celebrate their positive outlook as they move on from their time with Breast Cancer.
This year's event raised $100,000 – bringing the current amount raised to $193,000 including last year's event and a Cash, Fashion and Food Lottery held in January. Help us get to $200,000 by purchasing an anchor scarf at Joelle's for $20 or making a donation to the Joseph Brant Hospital Foundation with reference to #June8forJBH. The anchor is a symbol for hope, signifying the hope of improving Breast Cancer diagnosis and treatment locally.
