Celebrating the Arts & raising money for the LLSC

The 5th Annual Arts for Leukemia fundraising event took place on Saturday, May 9, 2015 in Ottawa. Franca Johnston, Chief Steward at Ross’s YIG, along with her three sons and friend, put on an amazing event again this year.

Thanks to Franca’s hard work and the generosity of local artists, who donated pieces for the silent auction, as well as many volunteers who set up the craft and bake sale tables, the event was able to raise $2,400 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada.

Throughout the evening, guests enjoyed entertainment from local artists and door prizes. Thanks to everyone who donated their time and talent, and to everyone who participated, for making this event a great success yet again.
