We, the Queen’s Law Cancer Society (QLCS), are a law-student based volunteer organization that works passionately to spearhead the fundraising effort to contribute as much as possible to several charities supporting Cancer. Our goal is to help fund Canadian research vital for improving the detection, prevention, and treatment of cancer, while raising awareness about cancer within the Queen’s Law community.
The QLCS underwent a change in executive structure in 2014, in order to more effectively focus our efforts. We are now a team of two co-presidents and fourteen executive members, in addition to countless committee members and volunteers dedicated to advancing our goals. The QLCS has a strong presence in the Queen’s Law community, planning monthly events for Queen’s Law Students and participating in off-campus events such as the CIBC Run for the Cure.
Last year, Cabaret for a Cure raised over $17,000 for the Canadian Cancer Society.
This year, we are hoping to take our largest fundraiser, the Queen’s Law Cabaret for a Cure, to the next level. The show is consistently the most anticipated event of the academic year, and usually involves over eighty students and faculty members, with an audience of several hundred people.
Cabaret for a Cure 2018 will take place on March 15 at Kingston’s foremost professional performance venue, the Grand Theatre, with an even larger audience, an even larger community presence and a fundraising goal of $20,000. The QLCS executive and committee members are dedicated to working tirelessly to achieve this goal.
Thank you for visiting our website, and we hope you will join us in our effort to raise funds and awareness within the Queen’s Law community.
