I have had the pleasure of participating in the donation portion of, which kicks off the entire Tournament, the Dave Dunmore Tournament for the fourth year in a row; it never ceases to amaze me at the terrific turnout  and support of this event every year; rain or shine!  Dawn and I arrived as the Piper was tuning up.  Gotta love tradition; Ian Starkman, our Molson Coors Representative and Brand Ambassador took over from there!

Over to you Ian!

Over 220 teams participated in the Dunmore Softball Classic this past weekend! The weather was great as teams from all over Ontario, Michigan and New York played to see who would win this year’s Dunmore Classic. Over $5000 was raised for Victim Services Toronto at this year’s event which Molson Coors was the proud sponsor. Molson Coors has been supporting the event for over 10 years which is played by police officers, firefighters and other 911 staff in honour of Dave Dunmore who was tragically killed in the line of duty.
Thank you to all who participated to raise money for a great cause.
Cheers!

Playing Our Part At The Dave Dunmore Annual Baseball Tournament

Dave Dunmore Tournament 2010

This past Friday, I cut work a bit early since I had the opportunity to attend another Molson Coors sponsored event.  This time, for the Dave Dunmore annual baseball tournament, held at Centennial Park in Etobicoke…just 10 minutes from our Molson Coors Toronto headquarters.  The Dave Dunmore tournament is an annual slo-pitch baseball event in honour of Dave Dunmore, 22 Divison, who was sadly killed in the line of duty.

The tournament, which also serves as a fundraiser for Toronto Victim Services, has been running for 26 years.  I had the opportunity to meet Deputy Peter Sloly, and the Director of Toronto Victim Services, Bonnie Levine.  Both volunteered to speak about the tournament and the strong impact it has had on raising awareness and money to help Toronto crime victims.  This year, Molson Coors proudly donated $6000 to the cause.

In case you didn’t know, Toronto Victim Services provides immediate on-site assistance and then ensures the victim is linked to longer-term services within their community.  Check out the videos to see Bonnie Levine and Deputy Peter Sloly discuss the tournament and the cause.
