Brain Cancer Research – 2017 Cocktails for Cancer Fundraiser

The annual gala fund raiser Cocktails for Cancer was held last Saturday night to raise funds for Brain Cancer research in Ottawa. Cocktails for Cancer traditionally has been the sister event for the South Ottawa Race Day which is held in the fall.  Things are changing this year and South Ottawa Race Day will be replaced with a new event Race for Research. I have had the pleasure of photographing this fun event again this year.

These wonderful people came together to help raise money for Brain Cancer research after Brain Cancer effected one of their friends, Heather Geddie. You can learn more about their fund raising, become involved and donate at their website: Race for Research.

Last Night’s Fun

The evening consisted of a silent auction, live auction, raffle, dancing, food and drinks and the presentation of a check representing the amount of money raised by this group.
