Celebrating a Decade of love!

With the help of our supporters and sponsors the 10th Annual Burn Your Bra For Bev Fundraiser raised $56, 000  for Hopewell Eating Disorder Support Center and the Lanark County Family Relief Program.

To date we have raised over $412, 000. Thank you we couldn't do it without you!


What is Burn your Bra for Bev?

The Burn your Bra fundraising dinner was initially inspired by Jody Gleeson as a way for her to support and create awareness for a disease that hits close to home after the tragic loss of her mother. In doing so Jody brought together some friends and family who had experienced similar losses. After the huge success of the first Burn your Bra for Breast Cancer dinner in 2005 which raised over $20, 000, it was decided that this would become an annual event each year supporting different causes.

Tragically, in 2006 the committee experienced a great loss the sudden passing of Bev Griffith. For that reason, Burn your Bra will now be known as Burn your Bra for Bev (BYB4B), in order to commemorate the impact she will forever have on our devotion to the causes. The sadness translated into motivation and commitment to date Burn your Bra for Bev has raised over $400, 000.

    Bev Griffith, our committee's driving force, mother to all, and more importantly an irreplaceable friend; you will be missed more than words can ever express.
