CHEO Casino Night

This is an amazing fundraising event on July 6th to benefit the Cheo Foundation and the Julianne Courneya Trust Fund. This cause is very important to a co-worker of mine, as some of you know, her 6 yr old godson Isaac was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer over the March break. Cheo has been a wonderful support to Isaac and his family as he continues to fight.  Please pass this email on to anyone you think will be interested.

This development is the next intergration of commercial and residential living, located in a master planned community set to house over 1,000 condos, high end shopping and dining.
