Mamma Mia – 14th Annual Mother’s Day Dinner & Dance – May 6, 2016
A special “Thank you” to Maria Gervasi and the Mamma Mia Women’s Association for making this year’s Mother’s Day Dinner and Dance a huge success.
The 14th Annual Mother’s Day Dinner and Dance was held on Friday, May 6th 2016 at the Club de Golf Metropolitian. A crowd of more than 400 women gathered together to experience a night filled with laughter, good food and wonderful dancing. But, more importantly these dedicated women gathered to raise funds to benefit the Wellness Initiative of the Cedars Breast Clinic under the leadership of Dr. Sarkis Meterissian.
The audience received special presentations from Dr. David Fleiszer, Surgical Oncologist at the Cedars Breast Clinic and Dr. Anthonio Vigano, Supportive & Palliative Care physician at the MUHC. The fundraising evening included fantastic Italian Food, homemade Italian desserts and an amazing selection of raffle items to be won by all.
Congrats to Mamma Mia who supported the Cedars Breast Clinic and raised $ 22,000 to support the Wellness Initiative. Our breast cancer patients will have access to psychologists, kinesiologists, exercise experts, and specialty nurses, who have developed 4 important programs: psycho-oncology, exercise programs, lymphedema therapy and breast cancer educational programs to support our cancer patients.
