Article By: Rebecca Weber


Tip Top Tailors has been a proud partner of the Fight To End Cancer Family since 2014.  They’ve been with us for 4 years now and have helped us out in ways we could not have possibly imagined.  This year alone, Tip Top Tailors have managed to raise and donate over $60,000 for Fight To End Cancer, as well as donating their formal wear and their time!

Tip Top Tailors donates their time and formal wear to the Fight To End Cancer campaigns every year, ensuring that our fighters look and feel elegant and strong, during the official campaign photoshoots.  This support is a huge part of what makes Fight To End Cancer the momentous event that it is every year.

Tip Top Tailors stepped up their game this past year, with a hearty goal of $60,000 towards Fight To End Cancer in support of The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation.  They accepted donations in their stores and online from May 1st to May 31st, 2017 .

They also had a new campaign called “Wear Your Support”.  Tip Top Tailors sold their own Fight To End Cancer tie clips in their stores for $20 each, with all proceeds benefiting the cause. These combined efforts enabled the company to meet their ambitious and generous goal.

This isn’t the first time that Tip Top Tailors has found a unique way to help us reach our goal of creating a cancer free world.  They partnered with Fight To End Cancer in 2015, with the awareness campaign #iFightCancer, with all proceeds going  directly to benefit the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation.  This campaign was run through the sale of postcards, available at all 32 Tip Top Tailors locations across the GTA, for a small donation.  The postcards gave those donating, the opportunity to share why the cause meant so much to them and how they personally had been affected by cancer.

Fighting cancer is part of the fabric of the company.  In their own words:

“Tip Top Tailors and the entire group of Grafton Apparel Ltd. companies is honored to join The Fight to End Cancer in supporting FTEC’s 2017 fundraising efforts.  Between the 100% proceeds from the sale of our Fight To End Cancer tie bars, along with the generous participation of our over 1100 employees across the country, we raised over $60,000 which will be going directly to The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation.”

We could not be more proud to have Tip Top Tailors in our corner as we work towards smashing barriers and reaching new heights for cancer research with Fight To End Cancer and the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation.  We are blown away by the dedication and loyalty that they have shown to the cause over the years, and look forward to many more years of successful collaboration!
