Win4Skin

 

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

Below is a video about the organization with a testimonial by our own Lisa Brent.
