In celebration of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Norsat and Sinclair joined organizations across the nation for the Dress for the Cause fundraiser. Dress for the Cause and the Breast Cancer Society of Canada raise money for the research into the detection, prevention, treatment and cure of breast cancer. To date, the Dress for a cause event in Canada has successfully raised over $7 million for Canadian breast cancer research.
To collect donations, Norsat hosted a delicious pancake breakfast complete with eggs, sausage, fresh fruit, and juice. Norsat’s CEO graciously offered to match all employee contributions.
Norsat’s Sinclair division in Aurora posted ribbons on their office walls, dressed up in their bra stickers and did a parade through the office and warehouse to gather donations, and promote awareness of this worthy cause.
Norsat’s two divisions, along with the corporate match from the Norsat Foundation raised $3,380.
