On October 20 come to Gendron Antiques and get 20 minutes of design consultation from industry experts for just $20. It’s all part of a creative fundraising event called 20.4.20 Designer Day Marathon.

All proceeds raised through the event will go to support Stephanie Lanctot’s battle with cancer. As the Orleans Star reported recently, “after a hysterectomy and rounds of radiation therapy, Stephanie is now battling a Stage 4 cancer.” A young Kindergarten teacher just starting her career, Stephanie is without additional benefits to cover the costs of her medication and travel to and from Toronto for weekly treatments.

It’s difficult enough to fight cancer, a person shouldn’t have to worry about the costs associated with trying.  That’s why we’re hoping to help her offset these additional costs and seek alternative treatment in New York. The goal of 20.4.20 Designer Day Marathon is to raise at least $4000.

We have pledged $10 for every review that is posted on HomeStars.com through the campaign. If you would like to participate, please post a review here. If you know anyone that’s had work done on their home please share the link with them as well.

Top Ottawa-area designers, such as award-winning and reality television star Penny Southam, will be part of the roster for 20.4.20 Designer Day Marathon.

So far the support and interest in the fundraiser has been tremendous. The Ottawa Citizen profiled Stephanie over the weekend as a “Defiant Fighter” and A Channel recently visited Gendron Antiques to discuss the event.

With 24 designers involved and 85 appointments left to fill, we’re eager to get the word out about the fundraiser. Book your appointment today by calling Gendron Antiques at 613-831-2186.

Please be sure and select the designer you would like to consult before registering. Visit our event listing to read reviews of participating designers or check out the Gendron Antiques website for a complete list of their websites.
