Inspired by the bounty of the fall harvest, the Canadian Cancer Society's OktoberFEAST will be a festive celebration of food and drink while connecting with friends in a downtown Perth setting with live music. It's the perfect way to get together in autumn.
The entry fee is $20 per person and all proceeds go to the local Wheels of Hope program. This volunteer- run program provides drives to Perth and Lanark area residents who are undergoing cancer treatment and need rides to and from their appointments in either Ottawa or Kingston. Just last year, 84 cancer patients in our direct area used the Wheels of Hope services. The average person uses this service about 8 eight times, which translates to approximately $500. The Wheels of Hope program is an especially important part of our service offerings for our residents living within the rural landscape.
