Buy your tickets for Scotiabank Feast of Fortune!

Jan 25, 2018 | News

This year, Scotiabank Feast of Fortune will touch many of us — maybe even all of us — as the gala event’s fundraising focus involves breast cancer.

Through personal experience, family or friends, colleagues or acquaintances, breast cancer is close to us all. Fortunately, it’s a battle we’re winning. Yet, it’s a battle we must keep fighting.

This year, Feast of Fortune donations will go toward a state-of-the-art mammography machine that has a new technology called “tomosynthesis,” which creates a 3-D image. Tomosynthesis has been hailed as a breakthrough in breast cancer detection as it can see through denser breast tissue, which has long been a challenge for traditional mammography. This means better breast cancer detection.

What is truly inspiring about this year’s Scotiabank Feast of Fortune? The older machine this new one will replace was purchased with funds raised at the inaugural Feast of Fortune event ten years ago, in 2008. This shows how gifts from our community contribute to excellence at Mount Saint Joseph Hospital.

The Scotiabank Feast of Fortune takes place Saturday, February 3, at the JW Marriot Parq in Vancouver. Want to be a part of this wonderful night? There are still tickets available and you can buy them here.
