United Way 2009 and Rouge!


The last two weeks of October was Molson Coors Canada’s annual United Way campaign, and this year was MY first as a member of the National Committee.  The first thing I’d like to say is”‘whew”.  The second is “whew!”.  Organizing a major campaign that raises hundreds of thousands of dollars is no easy task, but with a team of rockstar employees and incredible support from the United Way, we successfully completed our campaign with no (major) glitches! ;)

We’re still tallying the final fundraising totals across the country, but I wanted to share a couple photos from events and also mention that United Way Toronto’s annual fundraising event, Rouge, is coming up!

What is Rouge?

“Rouge is a red-hot fundraiser not to be missed. It’s an evening of music, silent auction indulgences, and mingling.  Experience an evening of mystery in mask leading up to midnight when everyone is revealed… Presented by United Way Toronto’s GenNext, this sizzling party brings people together in support of United Way Toronto’s Community Fund.”  United Way Website

I got to spend some time chatting about Rouge with United Way’er Rebecca Chesley (@UWTGenNext) and decided that I’m going AND I want you to go!  I have two tickets to give away to a reader and guest so they can experience Rouge themselves.

To enter for your chance to win the tickets, just leave a comment on this blog post or re-tweet the post including this link and @MolsonTonia.  I’ll draw the winner on Thursday, November 12th (Note – must be legal drinking age)
