Thank you to event organizers for adapting to the evolving environment we are living in and your commitment to raise funds for people who are affected by cancer. You made it through the uncertainty to hold safe, creative and successful events. Manitobans benefitting from your efforts are so grateful. Coffeehouse to End Cancer held its 10th anniversary event, changing its format to provide an incredible virtual concert. This live music event streamed to Facebook from Stonewall and was very successful.
“I was nervous we wouldn’t even be able to hold the event but Coffeehouse supporters near and far stood united,” says Paige Procter, event organizer. “What we accomplished reminds us that together, against all odds, we can accomplish incredible things.”Carberry Potato Truck Pull took its reimagined event to four Manitoba communities – Winkler, Carman, Portage la Prairie, and Carberry – and partnered with sponsor McCain Foods. Free Fry Day gave out free bags of potato products and people donated in return.
“It’s truly heartwarming to see what we can do when we all work together,” says Amy Smart, co-organizer of the event. “Each year we are touched by the love and support we receive, and this year was no different as we saw the lines of cars waiting to donate.”Persons of Interest held a front porch concert, Music for CancerCare and Everybody. This Winnipeg jazz group had their gigs cancelled but still found a way to carry on and raise funds to support CancerCare Manitoba. Whether it was a photo session, engaging your business in different ways or playing a round of golf in support, Manitobans stepped up in huge ways! Thank you for your resiliency to help cancer patients.
