The Bird restaurant located in 7 Mile Shops has raised CI $53,499 over the last 3 years during Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October.
For the last 3 years The Bird has raised money through their annual Golf Tournament, as well as the “For the Birds Soiree” held at The Bird which raised CI $18,799 alone with proceeds being generated from ticket sales and raffle tickets sold at the door.
“This is our 3rd year doing these two events and they wouldn’t be possible without our valued sponsors, patrons, friends and family,” added The Bird owners. “It’s hard work but we have fun doing it and it’s always easier for people to donate when they can share in the spirit of having fun for a good cause. Every year we try to improve on the final number, and we can’t wait to see what we’ll raise next year.”
“We cannot thank The Bird enough for their continued fundraising efforts for the Breast Cancer Foundation,” added Janette Fitzgerald, Chief Administrator, Breast Cancer Foundation. “It’s local companies like this, as well as Elite Marble who help put on these events at The Bird that contribute to all of the programs and support we offer to breast cancer patients on island.”
“In our ongoing efforts to prevent, treat and educated the public about breast cancer, the fundraising events put on by The Bird can make all the difference,” added James Bovell, Breast Cancer Foundation Founder and Director. “We truly thank The Bird for their continued support of the foundation over the last 3 years and are grateful for their future commitment to the foundation.”
