Since we can not meet for coffee in person, we will be planning some virtual social events. The next meeting information will be up soon!
Win4Skin is an associated organization dedicated to raising funds for skin cancer research by a banquet and a golf tournament.
The 2018 banquet was held on Saturday June 2 at
the Blatchford Field Air Hangar at Fort Edmonton Park. The event included a buffet dinner, speeches from Win4Skin community members, a fantastic live and silent auction and a dance to wrap up the
night. For more information on Win4Skin check the website at https://win4skin.com/banquet/
Below is a video about the organization with a testimonial by our own Lisa Brent.
