Josie Minniti’s OAM Annual Fundraising Dinner Dance

It’s been a long three years between dances, but Josie Minniti’s Dinner Dance Cancer Fundraiser is finally back!

Josie Minniti’s Dinner Dance isn’t one you’ll want to miss out on. Heels will be kicked up in celebration of an incredible 25 years of fundraising for vital equipment for Northern Health’s Day Oncology Unit. This equipment continues to allow cancer patients a more comfortable experience while receiving treatment – a cause very dear to Josie and her family who have been touched by cancer many times.

Josie said the event promised to be a fun-filled evening with lots of food, drinks and dancing, followed by a live auction, raffles and silent auctions.

“We want people to have a really good night,” Josie said.

“This year, we are celebrating 25 years of hosting our Annual Dinner Dance. After having rescheduled the event four times due to COVID-19, we are really looking forward to coming together with family, friends and the community to raise funds for an important cause.”

Every ticket purchased for this event continues to allow much-needed equipment to be purchased for our Day Oncology Unit.

In the past, Josie has helped raise money for treatment chairs, waiting room chairs, a prostate cancer scanner and a refurbished room in the Children’s Ward.

“We are raising money for medical equipment for the Day Oncology Unit at Northern Health as we want to make a difference to the lives of people battling cancer. That’s what it’s all about, improving the quality of life for patients undergoing treatment,” Josie said.

Pina Di Donato, Acting Executive Director, Public Affairs and Foundation, said, “We are extremely grateful for the support and dedication of longtime Northern Health Foundation Patron, Josie Minniti, in helping to raise much needed funds for our Day Oncology Unit.”

“The amazing support of people like Josie and her family, whose previous dinner dances have helped us purchase important equipment, makes a real difference to our cancer patients at Northern Health,” Pina said.

The Dinner Dance is on Saturday, 26 March from 6 pm. Tickets cost $60 for adults and $25 for children, and include a seven course meal and drinks.
