Steam Whistle - Do One Thing Really, Really Well

Beauty & The Bistro

Steam Whistle supports Beauty & The Bistro.

“Beauty and the Bistro” is an event whose goal is to support the purchase of a Digital Mammography unit with biopsy attachment for Joseph Brant Memorial Hospital, in Burlington Ontario. This state of the art equipment takes x-rays of the breast using digital techniques. The images can be manipulated by the radiologist in a way that could never be achieved with conventional mammography. As a result, smaller cancers can be detected earlier and suspicious areas can be biopsied immediately using digital guidance, which can only improve prognosis and increase the chance of curing this disease.  This type of technology is not available at Joseph Brant hospital.  This fundraising commitment will bring us closer to achieving our goal of allowing women and men to have thecomfort of their local hospital, with state of the art technology, during what could potentially be one of the most emotional moments in their lives.

 “Beauty and the Bistro” is spearheaded by Diane and Angelo Bentivegna, local business owners.  Diane is a breast cancer survivor herself, and, with her husband, is strongly committed to the community.  The event is recognized, supported and endorsed by the Joseph Brant Memorial Hospital Foundation. “Beauty and the Bistro” is a social evening in a distinct setting featuring local restaurants, breweries and award winning wineries that have donated their time, expertise and offerings.
