Survivors Parade & Luncheon | Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation

Last week we had the great honour of participating in the 8th Annual Survivors Parade & Luncheon for the Canadian Breast Cancer Society, held at Banker’s Hall on September 13, 2011.  Over the years, this particular cause has been near and dear to our hearts, as we have watched numerous family members and friends affected by breast cancer. This summer, we had the pleasure of working with the fabulous team of ladies at the CBCF office in Calgary, who worked tiredlessly in coordinating the inspiring tribute parade for breast cancer survivors.  Among a great panel of guest speakers, there was a fun photobooth, beautiful music by a girls choir, not to mention nearly 200 survivors in a sea of PINK!  Truly an inspirational and emotional spectacle to watch the parade of marchers through Stephen Avenue downtown.  Amid the smiles, tears, and reunions, it was uplifting to witness the hope and courage these survivors stood for.  We had such a fun morning decorating the conference room for the luncheon following the parade, beautiful pink floral centrepieces and custom made Argentinean cookies by Coco Karamel Alfajores in honour of the occasion.  The ladies were treated to a delicious spread of goodies, followed by draws for some fantastic door prizes, courtesy of our generous sponsors.  A big shout out to the talented Abigail Taylor of A&D Photography and Jeff Wilkins of ConceptPhotos for capturing some of these candid and poignant moments.

Hope & Love,

Joyce & Samantha
