“Few Tickets Remaining for the 20th Luncheon of Hope”

SUDBURY, ON – The Northern Cancer Foundation (NCF) and the Luncheon of Hope Committee are excited to have Linda Ockwell-Jenner as this year’s keynote speakers sponsored by Vale at the upcoming Luncheon of Hope. The luncheon will take place on September 28, 2018 at noon at the Caruso Club.

Known as ‘The Social Sweetheart’, Linda Ockwell-Jenner is a three-time cancer survivor, TV host, author, professional speaker, award winning entrepreneur and Co-Founder of the Small Business Community Network (SBCN). She will bring a message of hope and focus on her own experiences with breast cancer and overcoming life’s challenges.

Corporate tables of 10 are available for $600 (includes a $300 charitable receipt) and individual tickets can be purchased for $60 each (includes a $30 charitable receipt). There are very few tickets remaining!

To date, the Luncheon of Hope has raised over $845,000. With these funds, important breast-cancer research equipment has been purchased such as an inverted flourescence microscope that allows researchers to visualize the effects of cancer drugs on healthy cells and breast cancer cells and an Automated Capillary Electrophoresis Machine that is used to analyze very small amounts of protein extracted from patient biopsies and surgeries.

For table reservations, please call the NCF at 705.523.HOPE (4673). 100 % of the proceeds of this event stay in Sudbury!
