Caesars Windsor’s Concerts for a Cure campaign has raised $15,000 in donations to the Canadian Cancer Society.

The campaign donated $1 from every October Colosseum show ticket sold to the Society.

On behalf of Caesars Windsor, Tim Trombley, Director of Entertainment, presented a cheque to Judy Lund, Manager of the Canadian Cancer Society Windsor-Essex before the Great Big Sea concert in the Colosseum on Friday night.

Trombley said, “The Concerts for a Cure was a new concept that allowed Caesars Windsor along with the Canadian Cancer Society to continue to raise Breast Cancer awareness.”

Judy Lund, Canadian Cancer Society Windsor-Essex Manager, said, “Caesars Windsor continues to be a welcomed Corporate Partner as they continue to find creative ways to raise funds to fight back against cancer. This year’s generous donation will be designated to research projects for the two most common cancers faced by adult Canadians, breast and prostate. People are living today because of generous donations like this one from Caesars Windsor. Yet, there are still too many people facing cancer, so we are grateful to Caesars Windsor for their support.”

Caesars Windsor employees also raised $5,220 for the Cancer Society.
