Gala To Raise Money For Local Cancer Care

The 19th annual In Honour of the Ones We Love gala is set for tonight.

The event raises money for cancer care with a portion of the funds going towards the John McGivney Children's Accessible Playground.

Organizer Anita Imperioli says "it's all about community. I am one of those moms who lost a child to cancer long ago and I can tell you we have come a long way. We just have to keep battling together and we have to keep working together and you know what, it is working. We will finally get there some day."

The gala will feature a seven course meal, silent auction and raffle. 

Tickets cost $140.

The gala is tonight at 6pm at the Ciociaro Club.
