Staff From CIBC Val Caron Branch Commit Entire Year To Raising Funds For Breast Cancer Research

The staff from the Val Caron Branch of the CIBC have adopted Breast Cancer Research as their year-long charitable cause. 

Above in the photo, Lillianne Lapping, Karina Lapping, and Karen Ladouceur are shown during a special day at the Hanmer Valley Shopping Centre. They spent the day on April 29, 2006 selling items and raffle tickets to generate money for the CIBC Run for the Cure which will be held on October 3.

Karina is a volunteer who often gives of her time to help her mother, Lillianne and the other members of the committee.

The group organizes bake sales, penny sales, garage sales, chocolate bar sales and raffles all during the year to raise money and awareness.

One of their special raffle prizes is a beautiful art piece made by Lorraine Cousineau, herself a breast cancer survivor. The frame for the painting was made by Lorraine's husband, Bob, who passed away on July 4, 2005 of lung cancer.

If anyone is interested in helping out with donations or purchases of items to help with the fund-raising, you can drop into the Val Caron Branch of the CIBC and talk to any of the employees.
