Caesars Windsor donates over $150K in 2014 to help find a Cure for Cancer and Raise Awareness - $20K raised for Concerts for a CureBook A Room
On Saturday, November 29, Caesars Windsor wrapped up this year’s Concerts For a Cure campaign with a $20,000 donation evenly split between two incredible local nonprofit organizations, The Hospice of Windsor and In Honour of the Ones We Love. The campaign donated $1 for every Colosseum ticket sold for an October or November show which included a stellar line up of sold out performances by comedian Russell Peters, Sarah McLachlan, Gabriel Iglesias and more.
Kevin Laforet, Regional President and CEO, said, “These two local organizations have been an integral part of the fabric of WindsorEssex County. They have provided comfort and respite for thousands of families and their loved ones battling cancer and we are proud to continue to support their efforts over the years.”
This year alone, Caesars Windsor, together with employees, have donated over $150,000 in support of a variety of cancer-related organizations whose goals are to assist families and individuals battling cancer, to raise awareness and to find a cure. Throughout October and November, Caesars Windsor’s participating restaurants also offered special Healthy Option menus with a portion of proceeds benefiting the Canadian Cancer Society.
Since 1994, the property has proudly given over $8 million towards the fight against cancer.
At Saturday’s cheque presentation prior to the Air Supply concert, representatives from the Concerts for a Cure beneficiaries spoke to the audience. Executive Director for Hospice of Windsor, Carol Derbyshire, and President and Founder of In Honour of the Ones We Love, Anita Imperioli, thanked concert goers and Caesars Windsor.
Derbyshire said, “Caesars Windsor has always stepped up to the plate in supporting local initiatives and we are proud and thankful to partner with them again.”
