TORONTO, June 11 /CNW/ - The Keg Steakhouse & Bar will be the Presenting Sponsor of the 2010 "It's Always Something" Variety Show in support of Gilda's Club Greater Toronto, taking place Monday November 22 at The Princess of Wales Theatre.
"It's Always Something" is the main fundraising event in support of Gilda's Club Greater Toronto, a facility providing free emotional and social support programs to children, teens and adults living with cancer as a supplement to medical care.
"We are extremely pleased to be associated with such a valuable and worthy facility as Gilda's Club, and to continue our commitment to give back to our communities," said Mary DiCecco, Director of Marketing, Keg Restaurants Ltd. "The Keg is proud to support the outstanding talent, production and volunteers of "It's Always Something", which has truly become a spectacular night of entertainment in Toronto."
Named after famed Saturday Night Live comedian Gilda Radner, who believed 'no one should have to face cancer alone', Gilda's Club provides those affected by cancer with important support services not available through the regular cancer care system.
"We are very pleased to welcome The Keg Steakhouse & Bar to the Gilda's Club family," said Fran Walsh, Executive Director of Gilda's Club Greater Toronto. "It is a testament to the work done by our staff and many volunteers in filling the acknowledged gap in the treatment of cancer, to have such an outstanding corporate partner join us as we move forward and grow."
In its previous eight years, "It's Always Something" has raised more than $2.5 million for Gilda's Club Greater Toronto. Past performers have included Russell Peters, Bryan Adams, Eugene Levy, The Canadian Tenors, Nelly Furtado, Anne Murray, Colin Mochrie, Steve Martin, Ron James and Eric McCormack.
