On August 28th, I had the opportunity to volunteer at the Molson Coors Toronto Brewery annual golf tournament. As always, I love to volunteer at brewery events to see familiar faces and meet so many other great Molson Coors employees. While I was over at the Molson Coors Pub, I gave plant workers a demonstration of how to use Yammer – a tool we’re using globally to help employees communicate about all things Molson Coors. The response was awesome, it’s great to see how enthusiastic 1 Carlingview is to “join the conversation.”
The purpose behind the tournament was two-fold: to get employees together and to raise money for the Sick Kids Hospital…and they did just that, by successfully raising a whopping $32,000 and approximately $4,000 from raffle tickets!
The day began with a quick BBQ at the Molson Coors Pub and then all the golfers headed over to the Woodbine Golf Course. Briefly before teeing off, the cheque for the Sick Kids Hospital was presented by Brewery Manager Benoit Maillette, Social Club Committee President John Medeiros, and Brewery Site Service Manager Dave Kennedy to Lee Nichols who joined the tournament on behalf of Sick Kids Hospital. The day ended back at the Molson Coors Pub, where there was live entertainment and another BBQ.
Last year, the Toronto Brewery Golf Tournament raised just under $14,000 for Sick Kids within two weeks time. This year’s tournament included several more meetings and time to raise even more money for the cause.
“The 2010 Toronto Brewery Golf Tournament was a huge success for a worthy cause. Hopefully we can continue to host these fundraisers and raise more money each year.” said John Medeiros, President of the Social Club Committee.
Cheers to the Social Club Committee for doing such an awesome job with the tourney!

To rally support for Earth Day April 22nd and @mayormiller ‘s Community Clean up challenge April 24th Molson has placed a transport trailer in our parking lot at 33 Carlingview to accept donations of unwanted items from our employees and the greater community. An inspiration by Dr. Kirsty Duncan, our local Member of Parliament, the items will be re-directed to local charities. So…we encourage friends and neighbours or passers by to drop off your uneeded items to the John Molson transport trailer in the parking lot at 33 Carlingview Drive, right next to the Molson Beer Store and help make a difference for someone in need. Thanks for your support…cheers…@MolsonFerg

President and CEO of Molson in Canada, Kevin Boyce, joined with colleagues in Moncton earlier today to celebrate the one year anniversary of the Moncton Molson Brewery opening with a $15,000 cheque to Headstart. This money will be dedicated to the Headstart Food Box program this holiday season and will benefit 200 families in the Moncton area.
Clare Archibald from Moncton Headstart spoke about last year’s total of 1700 food boxes that would have provided food to over 3700 people. Archibald is hopeful that Molson’s efforts will encourage other corporations and individuals to provide support for this worthwhile cause.
Kevin Boyce spoke about the inspiration that he felt when touring the Headstart kitchen during last year’s brewery opening festivities. Moncton Mayor George LeBlanc was also on hand and as a past president of Moncton Headstart he spoke about the impact that this food box initiative has on families who are receiving this kind of support.
Molson has a long standing heritage and history of supporting the greater community. Kevin Boyce spoke about the company and the pride that Molson employees have in being involved in their communities.
