AMJ Campbell Provides Major Support for Cancer Fundraiser
AMJ Campbell has helped make Dancers for Cancer charity events possible since they began five years ago. Through contributions and volunteer support, AMJ Campbell has been there every step of the way.
year's Dancers for Cancer Charity Gala held
on May 9th was
co-chaired by two AMJ Campbell employees, Jenny Bowser and Gloria Kim. It
was held to a sold out audience at The Grand Banking Hall at One King West. The
evening of dancing, dining and encouragement raised $50,000 for SickKids
Hospital, exceeding the organizers' expectations. "It couldn't have been
done without the willingness and support of so many generous people who
volunteered their time, talents and resources," said Jenny Bowser, Founder
and Co-Chair. The event featured the talents of students from Georgetown's
Center Stage School of the Arts and McGinley Academy of Irish Dance. The emcee,
sportscaster Rod Black, kept the audience entertained with quick wit and humor,
while Canadian Hockey icon Paul Henderson, who personally battled with
leukemia, added inspirational words during his keynote address. Speaker Jessica
Theocharides, SickKids patient ambassador, added to the evening by sharing how
SickKids helped her through her struggle with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) --
she is now in remission.
for Cancer was founded just five years ago as the idea of two Georgetown,
Ontario high school students, Jenny Bowser and Melanie Chin. Founder and
Co-Chair Jenny Bowser, whose motivation came after the loss of her aunt to
cancer, said that instead of feeling sorry for herself, she felt she could do
something about it, and help the cause. And so, Dancers for Cancer has
transformed from a simple recital into annual activities featuring dance
competitions, a formal charity gala and more with all proceeds going towards
cancer research and cancer assistance services.
Bowser is proud to have AMJ Campbell and its employees
as a part of this fundraiser. The people at AMJ Campbell have shown their
continued support as volunteers for the fundraising events each year, and the
business leaders at AMJ have provided guidance to the fundraiser co-chairs,
Bowser and Kim. AMJ Campbell and its franchisees have been in attendance
throughout the years of performances, as well. Bowser hopes to host this event each
year and appreciates the continued support from so many.
Campbell is proud to be Canada’s largest moving company. We know that moving
isn’t just about possessions — it’s about people. Since 1934, we have dedicated
ourselves to providing relocation services built on trust and integrity.
