"The Assante community continues to inspire us everyday with its strong commitment to philanthropy and helping those in need," said Sean Etherington, President of Assante. "Through the ONE LIFE gala, our advisors support Princess Margaret Cancer Centre in an engaging way that allows it to continue providing top-class treatment for cancer patients in Canada."

Princess Margaret Cancer Centre is world-renowned for its advancements in treating cancer, along with its focus on putting patients' needs first, at all stages of their cancer journey. The Magic Castle is a free childcare support service for children whose parents are undergoing treatment within the hospital. The program runs in partnership with the Department of Supportive Care at The Princess Margaret and Canadian Mothercraft Society, a leader and expert in child specific resources.

"It is truly a pleasure and honour for me to be chairing the inaugural ONE LIFE gala for Princess Margaret Cancer Centre," said Ms. Tehranchian. "The Magic Castle will provide an escape for the children of cancer patients, a space within the hospital where they can forget about the challenges facing their families and just be kids."

The Magic Castle is the only program of its kind in an adult cancer centre in Canada and provides childcare to approximately 1,000 children (12 years old and under) annually. To support The Princess Margaret or for more information, please visit The PMFC website.
