Molson Coors Kicks Off Another Awesome United Way Campaign in Toronto

Toronto - Kick off with Toronto Maple Leafs

Molson Coors Employees with Toronto Maple Leafs’ Francois Beauchemin, Luke Schenn, Jean-Sebastien Giguere and reporter Joe Bowen!

After much hard work, we finally kicked off our 2010 United Way campaign on October 5 here in Toronto!  It wouldn’t be in true Molson Coors style if we didn’t invite some special guests along  for the kick-off ride, so we called out to Brian Burke (Toronto Maple Leafs GM), Joe Bowen (Leafs broadcaster) and a few  players as well!  Luke Schenn, Francois Beauchemin AND Jean-Sebastien Giguere showed up and gave some hockey lessons on our very own rink!

It gets better…the guys posed for pictures and signed autographs for employees too!  After all of the outdoor excitement, everyone headed inside to our John Molson Café for some delicious beer and watched as Brian Burke took over the room.

This year, we hope to raise $500,000 to donate, and so far we have been having awesome success raising funds.  I heard all about last year’s campaign, and am so excited that this year I get to partake in all of the 2010 United Way events.

Last night I went to our first United Way pub night, also at the John Molson Café, which included beer (of course) awesome live music, and wings from St. Louis Bar and Grille…I may have overindulged just a bit, but it was all worth it! I should also note that along with the food and beer, there were several games set up and employees got entered into a draw to win Leafs tickets.  I’m elated to say I work amongst people who are so generous and enthusiastic about all United Way efforts…keep up the good work Molson Coors!

There’s so much in store here at the office, like next week’s pub night which will be just as good if not better than last night’s event!  Cheers to everyone here for playing their part, and making a huge difference in the lives of so many.  I can’t wait to attend the next event!

Check out some of the pics from our kick off:

C’est avec beaucoup de fierté que Andrew Molson, membre de la 7e génération de la Famille Molson et vice-président du Conseil d’administration de Molson Coors, a remis officiellement un don de 225,000$ visant la construction de l’Aréna Pat Burns à Stanstead, dont la première pelletée de terre s’est déroulée sur les lieux de l’aréna le mercredi 6 octobre dernier. “Je suis très fier d’annoncer que Molson Coors va offrir 225,000$. Par ce don, on veut encourager les autres à donner. Stanstead est aussi une communauté importante située à la frontière et on est justement une compagnie implantée au Canada et aux États-Unis” de dire Andrew Molson lors du dévoilement.

Molson Coors fait honneur à sa longue histoire d’investissement dans la communauté, qu’il s’agisse du sport amateur, du sport Olympique (plus récemment à Vancouver), du sport professionnel partout au Canada, allant même jusqu’à investir dans de multiples projets locaux, et ce, depuis près de 225 ans maintenant.

Cet investissement de 225K représente d’ailleurs le Coup d’envoi de nos célébrations de 225 ans d’histoire au Canada, en 2011!

Ce montant sera versé directement à la Fondation collégiale Rouge et blanc qui accepte les dons pour la réalisation de cet important projet pour Stanstead, ville natale de Pat Burns.

Je n’ai malheureusement pu être présente à ce dévoilement … j’aurais bien aimé! Je suis impressionnée par la présence de Pat Burns … il fait preuve d’un courage extraordinaire pour le bien des siens et de sa communauté. Bravo Pat … Tu es un homme d’exception! Tu auras encore réussi à marquer l’histoire du hockey et insuffler des valeurs extraordinaires à la communauté, des souvenirs impérissables!
