Maryanne McManus, special events manager for Jennifer Ashleigh Children’s Charity, had this to say about last year’s sold out event, “We truly believe our donors are our partners in our mission to improve the quality of life for seriously ill children and their families. Thank you, thank you, thank you!”
This occasion has become a must attend in the Canadian transportation calendar for many companies as it provides insights from experts, networking with peers as well as the opportunity to support deserving charities. The event organizers are well known for ensuring that contests, games and fun activities are scheduled throughout the day so that each attendee has ample opportunities to take home prizes and giveaways.
This year promises to be even better for this signature event.
