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!
