On Saturday, October 25th the Waldenstrom’s Macroglobulinemia Foundation of Canada held its 4th bi-annual fundraiser at the Bata Shoe Museum in Toronto. The event was a great success and a good time was had by all. Our guests were able to roam throughout the 3 levels of the museum documenting the evolution of shoes and fashion footwear throughout the centuries, dance the evening away and nibble on some scrumptious food.
Add in some amazing auction items. A total of 46 items were generously donated this year, such as IndyCar driver James Hinchcliffe’s Indy 500 race suit, a ladies Philip Stein watch, beautiful artwork by local artists, handmade quilts , Spyder ski wear and a week at the Regent Grand Resort in the Turks & Caicos Islands were just some of the exciting offerings. Everything was bid on and taken home to be enjoyed.
James Hinchcliffe was on hand to lend his support for the WMFC . Waldenstrom’s Macroglobulinemia has touched our family and he hopes he can help bring awareness to this rare cancer.
We thank everyone who volunteered or sponsored this fundraiser in support of the “Imagine a Cure”campaign.
