CORPORATE SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITY
Hair Donation Ottawa will be holding its eighth annual Hair Donation Ottawa...A Cancer Research Fundraiser on Sunday April 15th, 2018. Hundreds of brave souls will be donating their ponytails of six inches or longer and/or shaving their heads during the annual Hair Donation Ottawa event and raising funds for cutting edge cancer research at the Ottawa Hospital and CHEO Research Institutes. All suitable hair donations go towards the provision of free wigs for financially challenged Canadian children & young adults who have hair loss for any medical reason. Participating hair stylists from various Ottawa and area salons, the teaching staff and students from the Algonquin College Hair Stylist program and many other people are volunteering their Time and Talent for this cause.
We are looking for sponsors for our highly anticipated 2018 event. Based on last years’ success, we are planning to make the 2018 fundraiser bigger, bolder and even more exciting. Last year, we raised approx $110,500 (more than $475,000 since 2011) and have donated well over 25,000 inches of hair to make wigs.
Proceeds Go Towards:
• Cutting Edge Adult and Childhood Cancer Research at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute and the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) Research Institute.
• Two annual $500 Bursaries to financially challenged Algonquin College Hair Stylist Program students to help offset their tuition fees and/or text books.
• All suitable hair donations go towards the custom manufacture & fitting & of approx. 10 free wigs a year for financially challenged children in Ottawa & region who are experiencing hair loss for a variety of medical reasons.
• We proudly support Green Circle Salons: All hair unsuitable for the wig-making process is sent off to be made into Hair Booms for oil spills on the world’s beaches, lakes & oceans.
• The manufacture and supply of free a trendy head scarf for every CHEO patient that needs one.
To make this event a real hit, we need your support. Your donation of money, items or services will help spur more funding and support for Hair Donation Ottawa’s two beneficiary charities, which are:
The Ottawa Hospital Foundation: Centre for Innovative Cancer Research: In 2011, The Ottawa Hospital Research Institute (OHRI), the research arm of The Ottawa Hospital, opened a new $15.8M laboratory that is uniquely designed to accelerate the development and testing of new cancer therapies. (Charitable Registration Number 86904 2747 RR0001)
CHEO: The Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) is a beloved institution that’s widely recognized for being an anchor in the Ottawa community. The CHEO Research Institute is the research arm of CHEO that works to create new knowledge and evidence to help provide the world-class care that CHEO is known for.
