CIBC ACT Now is funded solely by donation and fundraising efforts and the dollars raised are used to assist patients receiving care at LRCP. The fund is named in honour of our lead donor CIBC, but we have many companies and individuals who donate. The fund is managed by London Health Sciences Foundation and administered by Dr. Potvin and other LRCP oncologists.
Fundraising events for ACT Now are organized by a committee of volunteers. We have two major fundraising events per year:
The Annual Dr. Ed Brecevic Memorial “Smash and Drive” event:
- A combined tennis and golf tournament in memory of a talented London physician who died tragically in an automobile accident while in his Radiation Oncology Residency at LRCP.
- Held at Greenhills Golf and Country Club, this fun-filled day of golf and tennis is followed by a dinner and a silent and live auction.
Taste of Italy:
- A wine-pairing dinner held at Dolcetto restaurant. Great food, great wines and great friends all combine to make this a sold-out event each year.
