TORONTO, March 31 /CNW/ - On May 26, 2010, The Pencer Brain Trust will celebrate ten years of fundraising with a festive, flirty and fabulously French gala - suitably named TEN.

Cumulative net earnings prior to this year are in excess of $5 million (CDN). Funds raised will finance state-of-the art treatment and research at The Pencer Brain Tumor Centre at Princess Margaret Hospital - one of the largest brain tumor support facilities in North America.
