The Rose Ball to raise funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation this Saturday


Live music, glamour and food will fill the night for this new charity event

The Algoma Club is home to The Rose Ball charity event, taking place this Saturday, December 8.  Organized by Wendy’s Walkers (a Great Strides team), the event will  raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Doors open at 7pm for the”purple carpet” event. Dress your best and look like a star while you dance the night away and support a wonderful cause.

For Wendy Lumsden, this is an important event that hits right at home.  She is the creator of the Rose Ball and lives with cystic fibrosis.

“This is something that I have been dreaming of creating as a fundraiser for our Great Strides team for years, and I am so excited that it’s happening,” said Wendy. “We don’t get to dress up enough as adult and just have some old-fashioned fun!”

Manila Resto will be donating 10% of food sales on December 8 to anyone eating at the restaurant with a Rose Ball ticket.  Reservations recommended.

Tickets to the Rose Ball are $20 per person and can be purchased at Tickets include admission to the ball, live music by Nature (a band featured on Fox Homegrown and in the Independent Racket Nights), a glamour shot on the purple carpet courtesy of Neverfilms LLC, and a donation to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
