I recently took photographs at the 6th Annual Pink Glove Party at the Caruso Club.
It was an evening of celebration and awareness of Breast Cancer.
This event was hosted by the Angels In Pink in Sudbury.
Rose Sigouin who is part of the Angels In Pink volunteer group, contacted me about a certificate she had received from a draw. It was a certificate for photographic services I had donated in a gift basket for the Sudbury Theatre Centre several months ago. I agreed to photographing this worth while event.
On May 1, the dinner event welcomed performers from the local Yes Theatre group, Sudbury native tenor Joey Niceforo and Iona Reed Pukara on the piano.
The room was quite packed. People were having fun.
Tickets were sold for Penny Table items and many silent auction items were up for bid.
Tammy Gervais sold her cute little Cancer Bugs Art she creates. There were different sizes. These make great paper weights.
Jamberry Nails did some demonstrations with their nail decor.
Dr. Brule, Dr. McClure and Mark Harmon were the guest speakers for the evening.
Many prizes were drawn from dozens of prizes that were donated. This included a 50/50 draw and a trip to Las Vegas donated by Reds DJ Service in Sudbury.
There were lots of happy people.
A lot of community support makes fundraisers like these successful.
The net proceeds went to the Northern Cancer Foundation Breast Cancer Equipment Fund.
Annette Cressy founded the Angels In Pink and the Breast Cancer Equipment Fund in 2009.
In April 2010, the first Annual Pink Glove Party was launched.
Annette is a Breast Cancer survivor who wanted to help other women like herself.
She spoke to the audience about her own experience with Breast Cancer.
Early detection saves lives.
More than $500,000 was raised over the last few years to purchase equipment.
