Last Wednesday night was the final “Molson Cup On Ice Donation” and I was able to be a part of it. I have to admit I was as excited as the guests were. It was great to meet the MLSE Crew that makes it all happen behind the scenes.
Upon my arrival I was signed in by Alicia, she is involved with the Leafs Fund for Kids, and taken to an area while we waited for the rest of the Team that would be on ice with the March winner of the Molson Cup.
I met Kevin Stauch, guest of Joel’s, owner and operator of Oscar’s Roadhouse in Brampton and Tracey Ferguson,Variety – The Children’s Village. I wish I had more time to chat, Tracey is a four time Paralympic Medalist, having won 3 Gold and 1 Bronze. I found out that Tracey began her athletic career at Variety Village aspiring to represent Canada in the Games. Tracey credits Variety Village as having played an instrumental role in achieving her athletic goals.

Jason Blake has won the Molson Cup again, Way to go Jason!!
The charity that received the “On Ice Molson Cup Donation” at Tuesday nights TML game at the Air Canada Centre was Autism Speaks Canada. Imagine the inability to communicate your feelings, to voice your opinion or tell someone you love them? It is unimaginable, right? Autism is a complex brain disorder which inhibits the ability to communicate and form relationships.
Autism Speaks is a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to bringing hope to all who struggle with autism spectrum disorders. The primary goals are to raise awareness and to fund biomedical research that will lead to better treatment and ultimately, a cure. To learn more or make a donation, please visit www.AutismSpeaks.org.
Thank you Suzanne and Scotty for opening my eyes and listening with my heart. Carole

I was introduced to the Justin Eves Foundation early in my career here in Government Affairs and have seen how The “Minds In Motion Awards” impact our students with learning disabilities. If it were not for the Foundation, many students would never realize their true potential and experience post secondary education. This award helps offset the cost of tutors, note takers, special software and other accommodations that may be required by the student. For more information on this great cause visit the website at www.justinevesfoundation.com.
March is around the corner, maybe Jason will have a Molson Cup hat trick!!!
Have a great day, Carole
