The funds raised by WICC in support of cancer research have been achieved from industry support at a variety of WICC functions, including dinners, learning breakfasts, concerts, golf tournaments, marathons, Relay for Life, as well as the purchase of WICC candles, CDs and other products. In addition, numerous individuals, companies and associations within and related to the insurance industry have held or sponsored events specifically to raise funds for WICC or directed the proceeds of their annual events to WICC.

The involvement of all WICC supporters and volunteers has made it possible for WICC to achieve its Mission: To mobilize the Canadian Insurance Industry in the fight against cancer by focussing on cancer research, support and education.

A 'Night at the Races' Fundraiser ... with Fine Dining and Thoroughbred Horse Racing - was held at Woodbine Racetrack on September 7th -- produced by hosts Fred De Francesco and Bill Blakeney. The trackside fundraiser in support of WICC (Women in Insurance Cancer Crusade) featured an evening that began with cocktails, followed by a multi-course dinner and then casual conversation with attendees and guests during the evening's Thoroughbred races -- including time spent with special invited guest "Rob Ford, Mayor of the City of Toronto".

Fred De Francesco and Bill Blakeney presented WICC Co-Chair Jean Faulkner with a cheque for $20,000 raised through the event.
