WHERE: The Brooklyn Tavern | 1097 Queen Street East, Toronto (Kids and West-enders welcome)
WHAT: Please join us to raise a glass, raise some cash, and participate in the Fight to End Cancer…in the East End. With wine sponsored by Cave Spring and Beau’s supplying beer, all funds raised will support FTEC2017 fighter Chris Small in the Fight To End Cancer.
WHY? On the other side of the river and the other side of town, we have a proud history of Fight to End Cancer (FTEC) fighters. We also have a growing number of supporters who can get behind FTEC as a great cause and who love a good fight. We are East End Tough!
After training for months, brave east end fighter Chris Small will step into the ring on May 27th for a sanctioned bout in the 2017 Fight To End Cancer. Funds raised by FTEC are in support of the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation.
The ‘hood is in Chris’ corner and we are gathering together to show our support and help with his fundraising.
Words From Brooklyn Tavern | Cindy Wilkes
Brooklyn Tavern is so pleased to once again support the Fight to End Cancer and to have another close friend and regular customer lacing up the gloves! As with Georgia Curtis in 2015, we look forward to cheering on Chris Small this year in his bout.
We are very proud of the effort that Chris, Georgia and all the fighters put into this event. It inspires us to see how hard they are working to make their own contribution to the battle against cancer, which has touched us all in so many ways. The Fight to End Cancer is a wonderful event to attend, thanks to the hard work and dedication of the boxers, organizers, trainers, and volunteers. Beyond the entertainment value of the event itself, what is truly wonderful is to see so many members of our community coming together to fight a common enemy and working so hard to defeat cancer.
The Brooklyn Tavern and Leslieville community is rallying around Chris this year and we look forward to supporting the Fight to End Cancer until the battle is won. Together we are East End Tough!
