Enjoying a summer evening on one of Toronto’s best patios is probably one of the most sought-after things to do in Toronto, but knowing that you are also donating to an excellent cause to benefit individuals with breast cancer makes the evening that more special. The 3rd annual N9NE Gala will take place on June 19, 2013 at 7 p.m. in Toronto at event sponsor CI Financial’s rooftop patio at 15 York Street. This year’s gala will raise funds for the Canadian Breast Cancer Support Fund (CBCSF).
Founder and Chair Roula Panagiotopoulos said she is humbled “when guests communicate how much they appreciate the work we are doing raising funds for the CBCSF.”
The evening on the patio will include hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, dancing and a silent auction with deluxe bid items. Music will be provided by Bellosound’s Daniel Buckman and violin virtuoso Sonia Lee.
CBCSF provides short-term financial assistance for individuals diagnosed with breast cancer. The CBCSF’s goal is to reduce the economic impact of breast cancer, allowing patients to focus on their recovery.
Silent auction items (with more to be added) include:
One night’s stay at the Royal York, value $350
A round of golf at Magna Golf Club in Aurora with a pro and caddy, value $1,000
Guerlain skin care and cosmetics, value $300
OPI Nail polish collection, value $120
Kitchen Aid mixer, value $350
Spa Day at Doll Face Spa, value $500
Nella Bella Vegan Handbag/Backpack, value $100
Lux Spa Mani/Pedi, value $100
Tickets to the N9NE Gala are $75 and can be purchased online.
