Ladies raise cancer funds

The fourth annual Titz-elation at Ex Nihilo Vineyards Okanagan Valley successfully raised $9,500

The fourth annual Titz-elation at Ex Nihilo Vineyards Okanagan Valley successfully raised $9,500 for the BC Cancer Foundation in Kelowna.

Ex Nihilo Vineyards has created a unique, fun event unlike any other to bring women together in a festive atmosphere in support of the local program Managing Life with Cancer, and to Revolutionary Brachytherapy for Breast Cancer at the BC Cancer Agency in Kelowna. Titz-Elation was held at Ex Nihilo Vineyards in Lake Country on Oct. 19.

Managing Life with Cancer is a program offered at the BC Cancer Agency’s Centre for the Southern Interior.  This very special program offers support and counseling to anyone who has been diagnosed with any form of cancer.  Past participants have found it key to the success of their treatments.

The event has evolved out of inspiration from losing someone close to us to cancer; and wanting to help others through their journeys with cancer.

“I had a very special aunt who passed away at the age of 48 from cancer that had originated as breast cancer,” said Decoa Harder, proprietor of Ex Nihilo.

Titz-Eation is a women’s only costume event that included dinner by Routes Grill, Ex Nihilo Wine, cocktails from Urban Distilleries, music by DJ Krucial K, auction items from a host of wonderful sponsors including a helicopter wine tour from Valhalla Helicopters. Blenz Coffee and the Lake Country Fire Department teamed together to provide all guests a safe ride home.

Over the last four years Titz-elation has raised $34,000 for the BC Cancer Foundation.
