GROW ON WINDSOR RAISES OVER $190K IN SUPPORT OF CANCER AWARENESS, RESEARCH & TREATMENT FOR MEN LIVING IN WINDSOR/ESSEX!






Windsor, ON – February 2, 2017 – Windsor/Essex stepped up to the plate for a second year in a row!  Grow On Windsor has officially ended with a total of just over $190,000 raised in support of cancer awareness, research and treatment for men living in Windsor/Essex.The 2nd annual Grow On campaign, a month-long pledge based initiative, was a huge success thanks to the generosity of people living in our region.

We kicked off our 2016 campaign with last year’s top fundraiser, Brian Schwab of Cypher Systems Group, challenging a group of local construction giants to join the movement and pledge to raise the much needed funds.  These local warriors included, Tony Rosati – Rosati Construction, Davide Petretta – Petretta Construction and Gino Picconi – Timberland Homes.  They worked tirelessly on this campaign and collectively raised $94,561.00 – AMAZING!

“I’d like to think each and every person who participated in Grow on is a Warrior for the cause.  Without their dedication and commitment to Grow On, we would not be able to raise the funds we have to date for men living with cancer in our community. Windsor/Essex never disappoints with their generosity”, says Houida Kassem, Manager and Director of Development for the Windsor Cancer Centre Foundation.

We now have a new top fundraiser in town and would like to congratulate him and his team!  Tony Rosati and Team Rosati raised a whopping total of $50,925.00.   Way to go Team Rosati!

Thank you Windsor/Essex for helping us keep it local!  Keep your eyes open, razors handy and wallets open for next year’s 2017 campaign!
