Can YOU Help Fight Women’s Cancer?

Filed under: Breast Cancer & Leukemia Awareness — by Sue @ 10:11 am

Hello, I was wondering if you’d be able to HELP – I’m helping to run the Markham Classic Slopitch Tournament Aug 14-15 that is going to have a raffle/auction with all proceeds go to Women’s Cancer @ Markham/Stouffville Hospital. Would you be able to donate ANYTHING to the raffle/auction (i.e. gift basket, gift certificates, etc) to help raise money? If you’re able to, please send email address, or let me know – any help would be greatly appreciated. For more info, please contact Markham Classic Charity Slo-pitch Tournament for Women’s Cancer – see official donation request letter below.

Help Us Fight Women’s Cancer

Since the mid ’90’s Ron Filion and his team have been hosting the “Markham Classic Slo-Pitch Tournament” in conjunction with Molson’s Slo-Pitch National, which attracts teams from all across Ontario. Over 800 participants enjoy two fun filled days of softball with an event Saturday evening that includes a live auction and raffle with all proceeds donated to a local charity. Since we began, we have donated thousands of dollars to those charities and we continue this year, with our choice to support the fight against “Cancer in Women”.

The Markham Classic Slo-Pitch Tournament will be held on August 14 & 15, and headquarters will be located at the Owl & Firkin, 7181 Woodbine Avenue, (just north of Steeles).

Our mission will be to help in the fight against cancer in our community.

The success of this year’s Slo-Pitch Tournament relies on the generous support of our valued partners. I invite you to become one of those partners and join our tournament as a Sponsor to help raise money in support of the Breast Health Centre at Markham Stouffville Hospital.

Since opening its doors in June 2007, the Centre has delivered a necessary service to the women in our community. The rapid access Breast Health Centre represents a patient-centered model of care offering the latest in diagnostic, assessment and treatment capabilities focused completely on the patient’s needs. The center delivers “one-stop” coordinated care in a dignified setting built for optimum patient comfort and privacy.

On Saturday August 14th at the “Markham Classic”, we will have a live auction, a joker poker as well as a raffle. Your support by providing items such as gift certificates, gift baskets and items that can be auctioned or raffled will help us to raise money to ensure that woman in our community continue to receive the care they need, close to home.

We thank you for considering a continued partnership with us and look forward to building a stronger relationship with you.


Sherry Filion
