Drum Roll Please ...
The Recipient Charity and Final Tally ... Congratulations to Kerr Street Mission - Christmas Wonders Program for being the Recipient Charity! Together, we raised a whopping $15,700! Kerr Street Mission - Christmas Wonders Program is an outreach program that helps make the holidays more celebratory for the families and individuals in the Kerr Street area of Oakville, where there are over 26,000 people who live below the poverty level. Our donation will ensure that over 200 local residents will receive a good meal and a present this holiday season.
It was great to come out and meet some of the staff and learn more about this program, and the many other programs KSM supports. We'll be sure to get some of the staff out to our next event to meet all the guys and give us an update.
Thanks to a Great Group of Guys! Our 3rd Event was another phenomenal success, with 157 guys pitching in. A truly outsanding result! It was great to have David Klarer come out and tell us about Grace House and how they will be using our group donation from our last event. A huge thanks goes out to Vik Sachdev and the Oakville office of PwC, for providing us with a great venue, delicious appetizers and a variety of beverages. Also a special thanks to our volunteers, including Andrew Sue-A-Quan, Mel Hum, Rob Ruso, and Enzo DiStefano for holding down the registration desk. If you missed the event, check out some of the pics here taken by member & volunteer photographer Paul Occhiuto.
Feedback & Volunteers Welcome ... We welcome your feedback - please email or call us with any suggestions you may have. We are always looking for volunteers to help out during our events (registration desk, photographer, etc). Just a friendly reminder that there are only a couple of us doing this at the sides of our desks. As we look to improve our events, we kindly ask you to RSVP to our invites, come with cheques in hand, make payment arrangements in advance and let us know if you can't make it. Don't make us chase you!
Please Continue to Spread the Word Let's keep the momentum going. Please continue to spread the word to your friends, neighbours and colleagues. Our group is not limited to 100 guys or Oakville. We want to focus on Halton based charities and are happy to welcome guys from Burlington, Brampton and Milton. Let's see how big we can get, and how much of an impact we can make in our local communities.
If you are interested in joining us, please make sure you sign up with all your contact info here so we can add you to our mailing list. You can also follow us on social media for more updates.
