Weddings & Anniversaries

Say 'I do!' to Conquering Cancer and Include The Princess Margaret on your Special Day.


Jamie Fong is a registered nurse who works at The Princess Margaret. She and her fiance decided to make a donation to The Princess Margaret in lieu of sending their guests home with wedding favours. Jamie sees the effects of cancer on a daily basis and saw their wedding as an opportunity to help their patients.
This donation was also a way of honouring her late mother-in law, who passed away from breast cancer in 2003.


Mr. Vito and Mrs. Carmela Burdi have been supporting The Princess Margaret since 1999. As their 50th wedding anniversary approached, they decided to include The Princess Margaret in their celebration. Not only did Mr. and Mrs. Burdi make a generous donation in lieu of bombonieres, but they also asked their family and friends to make a donation in lieu of a gift. Click here for Carmela & Vito’s Story.
