This February, I’ve committed to Lose the Booze and give up alcohol for the entire month, in memories of my father, Tassos Vlachos, and the many, many family members and friends we have lost to cancer over the years.
It will definitely be a challenge (I enjoy my wine!), but I’m doing it for an important cause. While I’m swapping my wine for water, I’ll be fundraising for the BC Cancer Foundation, to help support the incredible people and programs they offer to those affected by cancer. And once the realization of the staggering statistic of one in two people in our beautiful province will face cancer in their lifetime, I knew this was a cause I’d be willing to be parched for.
It’s going to be a long month, and I’m relying on the support of friends and family like you to see me all the way through February 28th.
And although I have reached my goal of $500 (THANK YOU TO ALL MY AMAZING DONORS!!!), I will continue to be dry until March 1 and hopefully raise even more money for this great cause!
Please, will you support me with a donation today? Your gift will directly support life-saving cancer research taking place at BC Cancer – and will play a huge role in keeping me motivated this month.
Thank you so much for your support!
