Ex Nihilo raises $9,500 for cancer

Ex Nihilo Vineyards has created a unique, fun event unlike any other to bring women together in a festive atmosphere in support of cancer patients.

Ex Nihilo Vineyards has created a unique, fun event unlike any other to bring women together in a festive atmosphere in support of cancer patients. The event raised money for a local program called Managing Life with Cancer. This is a very important program that has changed peoples  lives and has greatly benefited them in their coping with cancer. Our community had LOST the program because of a lack of funding. With the commitment from Titz-Elation to put all the money it raises to the program, it has been able to start up again and will continue to help people in our community. Titz-Elation was held at Ex Nihilo Vineyards on Saturday, October 22.

“I had a very special Aunt who passed away at the age of 48 from cancer that had originated as breast cancer,” commented Decoa Harder, proprietor of Ex Nihilo. “It has been a personal goal to support breast cancer research and Titz-Elation is exactly the kind of event she would have loved!” Titz-Elation is a women’s only costume event that included a Champagne reception hosted by Summerhill Winery, fabulous food, great wine, outrageous costumes and a silent auction. Event highlights also included comedian Mia Sheldon and a live auction where a six hour helicopter wine tour sponsored by Valhalla Helicopters went for $2,750. Ex Nihilo would like to thank all the sponsors who helped make the event not only a success, but a very memorable and fun evening for women.

Managing Life with Cancer: Skills to Live By is offered through the BC Cancer Foundation and is held at the Kelowna Cancer Clinic. The program is designed for people living with cancer and for their support person(s). It offers information, support and practical guidance that will be useful for the support person, as well as the person living with cancer. The goal is to help people better manage the challenges of living with cancer. The program is offered to anyone living in the Southern Interior of BC.
