Union Steward Franca Johnston, from Ross’s YIG, organized another successful Arts for Leukemia fundraiser on May 20 in Ottawa.

Along with a great group of friends and family, Franca works hard every year – this being the 7th annual event – to make this evening fun and successful.

And this year was no exception. Musical entertainment by local artists ran throughout the evening and art for the silent auction was all donated generously by local artists. Talented volunteers donated treats for the Toonie Table too!

With the amazing help of volunteers to set up the tables and hall, Franca and her team were able to raise $2,259 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada (LLSC).

Thank you to everyone who joined us for a great evening! Whether you donated your talent, volunteered your time, or gave money, every step takes us closer to a cure for blood cancers. #somedayistoday

See you next year!
