Third Annual Valley Breast Cancer Fundraiser

Third Annual Valley Breast Cancer Fundraiser
By Donna Paisley

My name is Donna Paisley, and I am hosting the 3rd Annual Valley Breast Cancer Fundraiser. This year’s event will be in support of the Cancer Patient Navigator Fund. The Cancer Patient Navigator Fund at the Valley Regional Hospital in Kentville is designed to assist patients going through cancer treatment, whereby 100% of the funds donated assist patients with the crushing costs of cancer, treatment travel, medications, medical equipment, prosthetics, and more.

My dear friend, and celebrity, Rhayne Thomas is coming from Las Vegas to perform at this year’s event. Rhayne has volunteered in the cancer arena since 1976, is a survivor herself, and continues to raise breast cancer awareness across North America. Rhayne is a vocalist, author, inspirational humourist, “The Prune Whisperer,” and walked the runway during New York Fashion Week in 2018, and performed in 2019, in support of Project Cancerland (projectcancerland.org) and Anaono.com. My paintings will also be auctioned off during the party. Last year 5 of my paintings were auctioned off during New York Fashion Week in support of Project Cancerland in the US. Here is my Facebook page that shows some of the most recent paintings. facebook.com/inthevalleyfundraiser/

This is my 3rd year doing these events, the first year was at the Grand Pre National Historic Site, and last year we did two events, one at Barrelling Tide and the next day at the Noodle Guy both in Port Williams. This year, the Valley Breast Cancer Fundraiser will happen on August 1 at the Wolfville Lions Club in support of the Cancer Patient Navigator Fund for Kings County. Doors open at 6:30pm. The evening will include signature cocktails, hors d’oeuves and sweets, a silent auction, a 50/50 draw, door prizes, and a cash bar.
