Announcing Our Title Partner in the 3rd Annual
Fight To End Cancer
The Fight To End Cancer (FTEC) team is honored to announce Eagle Professional Resources as our Title Partner for the third edition of our fundraising gala in support of the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation.
This is the first time welcoming an Official Partner for the gala; and we couldn’t be more pleased with the honour going to the amazing team over at Eagle Professional Resources.
Eagle Professional Resources have been an incredible support system to FTEC right from the beginning. Since day one, they have been in attendance, cheering on the courageous fighters who step into the ring and have helped spread the word about our event and the important cause that it is helping to raise funds for. Eagle Professional Resources is owned and run by Kevin Dee; a long time believer in the importance of literally fighting to find a cure for cancer. Prior to his and Eagle’s attendance at the FTEC gala; Kevin was preparing diligently for his own boxing bout against cancer when he took part as a fighter at the Fight for the Cure event held in Ottawa a few years back.
It was then and there that FTEC’s own founder and owner of Kingsway Boxing Club, Jennifer Huggins, first met Kevin as she worked as a coach in his corner for the Olympic-style boxing competition. Kevin shares his thoughts on Eagle’s new role as Title Partner for FTEC’s 2014 event:
“This event provides much needed exposure and financial support to Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation, and its fight to end cancer. It is because of Jennifer Huggins’ vision and drive that this event happens and I am proud to be able to play a part in the event’s success. I’m looking forward to an elegant evening with great food, great company and great entertainment.”
Through their brief, but intense first encounter, Jennifer and Kevin bonded over their mutual passion for the sport, the business and most importantly, the cause. Jennifer now proudly calls Kevin a great mentor and a great friend. In her own words, Jennifer shares her gratitude with both Kevin and the entire Eagle Professional Resources team.
“I couldn’t be more grateful having such a wonderful mentor and team behind my vision, and this important cause”, says Jennifer.
With just over two months left until the FTEC gala on Saturday, May 31st, 2014; the pressure is certainly starting to be felt by our 2014 fighters stepping in the ring to literally knock out cancer. Knowing that we now have this sponsor partnership from the Eagle Professional Resources team; the long road on our journey towards ending cancer now seems to have a guiding light up ahead…and it is being held by a supportive friend.
