As the SBCN is a networking group I find it beneficial to pass on information about small business owners I have worked with and maybe the visitors to this site will take a look at the websites posted here and in the future may well find they need to use the particular businesses themselves.

One such business is owned by Tamara Gollob and is called Classique Decor

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month....but....

Please do not get into the frame of mind that breast cancer only occurs in the month of October. There are so many awareness initiatives out there these days it is hard to realise that real people actually go through the challenges of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and other such health challenges. Sometimes we get so tied up in al the initiatives out there to raise awareness or fundraise we forget why we started in the first place.

Fashion Show a Success - Awareness is Vital for all Health Challenges...

Well I can sigh with relief, the fashion show I co-chaired with Melissa my daughter is over! What a success it was, almost 500 tickets sold, the first event Melissa and I had ever attempted and the praise in emails or telephone calls keeps coming. Obviously we did not arrange this fashion show for praise but I believe everyone likes a thank you or a pat on the back indicating a job well done. The Runway for the Cure: Our Vision of Hope was a new initiative bringing awareness about Breast Cancer to the publics attention during Think Pink Week here in Ontario ,Canada.
