The seventh annual Fight to End Cancer gala was a glamorous evening. This sold out black tie fundraiser featured ten Toronto-based men and women, with no prior boxing experience, to step into the ring and duke it out in support of the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation. The organizers project that over $350,000 will be donated to The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation in 2018 and that they have raised over one million dollars for this worthy cause. It was held on June 2, 2018 at the historic and luxurious Old Mill Inn. Upon entry, guests were greeted with wine at the open bar, hors d’oeuvres, and Vegas showgirls who looked amazing in their sequined two-piece outfits and elaborate headdresses. This event was co-hosted by Angie Seth and Kevin Newman. In attendance was Canadian Boxing Legend George Chuvalo,
There were a handful of fundraising activities held throughout the evening such as live auction and the raffle for the personalized gift baskets filled with the boxers’ favourite items. At this year’s gala, each table had tablets that listed each of the auction items, making it possible to check on your bids during dinner without leaving your table.
The Fight To End Cancer Gala was a great success for a very worthy cause. Check back here for next year’s Gala.
