The 2017 “Friends for the Cure” cancer fundraiser under the “Bal en Rouge” theme raised an astounding $330,000, thanks in large part to committee member Frank Rana, who single-handedly collected the lion’s share of that amount through corporate donations.
Just under a thousand people attended the event, which featured the high-energy entertainment of the Sophistoccasion showband.
Guests could pose for pictures in front of the “Friends for the Cure” media wall one moment and order drinks at one of the 2 bars at Le Madison reception hall the next.
The popular raffle once again featured multiple trips, including one to Spain and, as always, the silent auction included, among other things, a slew of sports memorabilia as well as tickets to NHL games.

Members of the committee wish to thank everyone, from event attendees to sponsors, for their precious support.
