The two day 2010 Eco-Business Summit focused on giving businesses the skills they need to realize energy reduction opportunities – getting beyond the big picture of why businesses should reduce their costs, and giving hands-on training on how to identify, sell and implement energy projects.
What a great way to end the two days!! A big thank you to Benoit Maillette, Molson Coors Toronto Brewery Manager and Dirk Bendiak, Quality Service Manager who took the Partners in Project Green Group on a tour of the facility, with the final stop at the Toronto Brewery Pub for some good old fashioned hospitality.
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 useYammer – 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!
