Molson Coors Concludes Another Successful United Way Campaign


With our annual United Way campaign now over, I can proudly cover some highlights of the campaign and how Molson Coors helped out in a big way this year!

To date, we have raised $550,000 including our corporate match…pretty sweet, eh?  As an added incentive (although I don’t think one was needed, since we have a generous team as is) employees who pledged more than $100 were entered to win our national prize: a trip for two to the Grey Cup! Not too shabby, right?  We also gave away four iPads for our regional draws.

The really great thing about our Toronto UW campaign is that it gives us an extra opportunity to plan internal events. We had two pubnights which boasted delicious food care of St. Louis Bar and Grill and Lone Star Cafe.  Most importantly, we  got our awesome team together for after work beers and socializing in support of a good cause.

The West hosted  galas in Edmonton on November 4th, and Calgary November 16th, but what would a Molson Coors gala be without a special guest or two?   The Calgary gala featured an appearance by Calgary Flames assistant  GM JayFeaster, who gave a “state of the union” address and fielded questions from the audience.  Cheers to the team out West for putting together two exquisite galas!

We look forward to planning our 2011 United Way Campaign in the coming months, and each year we aim to raise more money and more awareness of the importance in donating to United Way.  Big thanks to Gordon Shand and Toby Goldberg, our sponsored employee for all of their help and dedication in getting this campaign up and running.  Great work everyone, I’m so happy I got to participate this year…can’t wait for the next!  Be sure to check out some of the campaign pics below…

  2. Congratulations to everyone who participated to make a difference all across our Country. If I may add to Tonia’s history, Marjolaine Deslauriers from Molson Coors in Québec also set-up two fireworks fundraising activities from the roof-top of the Brewery during last June, to raise funds for Centraide. Hats off to Marjolaine for organizing her own galas in Québec …!
