Let the Summer Begin. BBQ’ing and Volunteering

LCBO Queen's Quay Toronto - Camp Ooch BBQ 2010

It’s been a busy month already with some amazing weather in Ontario!  Can’t speak for the rest of the country…but summer has arrived here.  Taking advantage of the warm weather, pics from some recent events.  Cheers.

The LCBO Queen’s Quay charity BBQ (Toronto) took place on June 4th with all proceeds to Camp Ooch.  This was the 19th year of the event, raising $130,000.  Pretty awesome – in their first year, they raised $500!  Anyone go?

Molson Top Talent team raises $12,000 for Camp Ooch

The team at Camp Ooch

Definitely needed to write about this one -a great example of team work and employee volunteerism.

A little background: Molson has a program called Top Talent which is focused on developing the leadership capabilities of director level individuals at Molson. One part of the program is a Philanthropic Challenge, and this year’s challenge was to provide a team of 15 Molson’ers to paint 4 camp buildings in preparation for the summer camp season at Camp Ooch.

Let’s just say that this year’s team took on the Philanthropic Challenge and ran with it.  Not only did they complete 250 hours of volunteering at the camp, they also raised over $12,000 through online donations, an online auction and participating in the Sporting Life 10k run.

Always important to have a couple cases of beer ready to go after a long day of painting!

Molson team at the Sporting Life 10k

Wish I could say I was one of the runners that day :) Some great inside scoops from Sporting Life 10K Team Molson are below.  This is just one of the events that our employees are participation/organizing to help raise funds for Camp Ooch. Thanks for the stories guys. Cheers, Tonia

The Molson Team

Ricardo Eusebi, Director, Operations Finance, Molson:

A fantastic race on a wonderful Sunday.

Me, Matt and the Molson team were among the 12,000+ runners in the Sporting life 10k race event yesterday in Toronto. We were lucky enough to run on a super nice day as weather was just perfect! We were all very motivated and ready to run our best race in support of a very good cause.  Unfortunately because of the amount of people participating in this event we struggled a little in finding all the Molson team members, but at the end we managed to meet up with some of the team at the finish line.

Camp Ooch also did very well as they were able to raise over $800k ! Just a little shy of their target, but still twice as much as last year. On our side we are still not done.  The race was just the beginning! We started a silent auction last week and  we will do some work at the camp on May 29/30. Still a lot of work to be done before turning in an amount that exceed or target!

To finish, just a quick come back on my race. It was just as expected – tough at the beginning, but very gratifying at the end. I think the toughest part for me was to realize that one of our team members, that finished before me, actually when to bed at 3am after testing a few of our products…I think I still have some training to do!

Ready, set, go!

Matt Hook, Manager, Global Engineering, Molson Coors Brewing Company:

It was my first ever charity run and it was an exhilarating feeling.  The downhill course was certainly helpful in me achieving my run goal.

We had a great showing of Molson participation from Susanne Niles, Rob Morrell, Ian Douglas, Steve Stradiotto, Jonathan Lowes, Warren Dean, and Anneliese Renner to name a bunch.  Although we didn’t manage to meet up as intended, I ran into few after the race that had an equally great experience.

I also spoke with Michelle from Camp Ooch after the race and she showed great excitement for the total fundraising amount and was looking forward to Molson’s contribution.
