Caesars Windsor is launching a new fundraising initiative Caesars Concerts for a Cure in support of the Canadian Cancer Society.

Concertgoers can feel great about their Colosseum ticket purchase because Caesars Windsor will donate $1 for every ticket sold for an October show.

Shows included in Caesars Concerts for a Cure: Lionel Richie on October 3rd, So You Think You Can Dance on October 4th, Vince Gill on October 11th, Jethro Tull’s Ian Anderson on October 19th, The Band Perry – all ages on October 20th and The Wanted an all ages show on October 24th.

Kevin Laforet, President and CEO of Caesars Windsor, said, “Caesars Concerts for a Cure is an initiative that allows us to help raise funds for an incredible organization as well as raise awareness with our guests and staff for the need to continue the fight against cancer.”

Since the beginning, Caesars Windsor says they have donated more than $55,000 to the Canadian Cancer Society.

Judy Lund, Manager, Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) Essex County Community Office, said, “The Society leads the fight against cancer across the country because of the incredible support from community partners like Caesars Windsor. Support like this has yielded many remarkable insights into how the more than 200 different cancers develop and have greatly improved our ability to detect and treat these diseases. More people are surviving and thriving beyond their cancer diagnosis than ever before.”

“There is still more work to be done and thanks to Caesars Windsor and their staff, we can continue to lead and support the fight until no Canadian fears cancer,” she explained.
