Charity Events

I’m doing two events in the next month or so to raise money for charity.  First – my New Year’s Day Brunch – eight great food vendors to provide a great meal, all proceeds to the United Way.  For details click here.  Thanks so much to Robin Munro and Nina and Lauren in my office for all the work to prepare for what’s becoming a great New Year’s Day tradition.

Second – Big Roof Fest:  A Concert to Benefit the Homeless in Barrie.  Featuring none other than Canadian Hall of Fame rockers Blue Rodeo.  January 25th, 2013, at the Barrie Molson Centre.  Proceeds to support the David Busby Street Centre and the Salvation Army.  Huge thanks to Rock 95/Kool FM our partners on this.  Click here for tickets (click on the Big Roof Fest logo on the right).
