Time To Give Big Toronto! November 1st “The Big Give” Event Is Happening & You Should Be There!

As you know, I am a pretty big fan of  doing charitable things. I also, like most people, like to imbibe with an alcoholic beverage or two every now and again. Tomorrow night I will be attending the charity event whose poster you see above. The Big Give, as it is called, is in support of Look Good Feel Better (LGFB) which is a program of the Canadian Cosmetic, Toiletry, and Fragrance Association Foundation.

LGFB hosts 1,200 FREE seminars a year for women and teenage girls going through the physical effects of chemotherapy and the battle with cancer. The seminars teach these women how to maintain their self-confidence and elevate their self-image through their battle with cancer. The money being raised by this event is to keep the seminars free because going through cancer is hard enough but going through it alone is even harder. The LGFB workshop brings women with cancer together in a safe and supportive environment where they can share stories, insights, laughter, and feel “normal.” One Hundred Percent of the proceeds generated by the event are being given to LGFB which is just amazing when you consider how many other charity events promise “a percentage” of their proceeds will go to the charity but you never get to find out how much that percentage is (remember, 1% is still “a percentage”). If you know someone who could benefit from one of these workshops here’s a link for the Canadian LGFB workshop locator – https://www.lgfb.ca/workshop_locator.

Follow the hashtag #TheBigGive on Twitter for all the action tomorrow if you can’t make it out.

A ticket to the Big Give event will include food and alcohol, entertainment –  the event will be hosted by Mike Chalut of the Mike Chalut Show on Proud 103.9FM and have live music – and tons of swag up as auction and raffle prizes. These include

  • A house in the south of France for a week
  • Leaf tickets
  • Pearl necklaces
  • Lunch with Ricky Romero
  • and more!

All tickets are $40 and can be purchased at DoTheBigGive.com.

The swag bags that EVERYONE WHO ATTENDS WILL RECEIVE look pretty amazing as well with over $350 worth of goodness in them. Check out the picture below taken from the Big Give’s Facebook Event Page.

REMEMBER: 100% of the proceeds generated are being given to Look Good Feel Better.

The Big Give 2011 Swag Bag: Each Attendee will receive this $350 + goodies on their way home from the event. Thanks to their very generous sponsors!

The event is under the leadership of Margot Grant Witz “@margotgrantwitz”, Beauty Director at Elizabeth Grant International. It is destined to be one of the most high profile fundraising events aimed at a younger demographic.

Hope to see you there tomorrow!
