On FRI SEP21 Peter Nygård, Chairman & Founder of NYGÅRD hosted Winnipeg’s largest & most prestigious charity event, the 3rd annual NYGÅRD for Life Pink & White Charity Ball held at the Winnipeg Convention Centre. A sell-out crowd of 1,200 guests attended the gala fashion show & dinner - including VIPs, NYGÅRD associates, suppliers & customers - all dressed in pink & white in support of breast cancer awareness & research.
The evening began with Jim Bennett, President & CEO of NYGÅRD, presenting a cheque to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation in the amount of $600,000. "Breast cancer awareness & research continues to be top of mind for our associates, 12 months of the year - and we are honoured to be involved with the CBCF" says Peter Nygård.
As a touching finale, Peter Nygard paid a heartfelt tribute to his lifelong personal hero & Breast Cancer Survivor – his mother, Hilkka Nygard.
Following the fashion show, guests enjoyed a delicious 3-course meal & were entertained by "That 70’s Band", dancing the night away.
As part of the company’s ongoing global campaign to increase awareness & support of breast cancer, an exclusive one of a kind "GODDESS GOWN" specially designed by Peter Nygård was raffled off with all proceeds donated to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
