nov11:12-2On October 27, 2012, the Local Union hosted the second annual Wine & Cheese fundraiser in Thunder Bay. More than 120 people from the community, including Local Union members from Metro, Canada Malt, Safeway, Hagi Independent Living and other workplaces in the area, showed up to enjoy the great food, take a chance at winning a raffle prize and participate in the silent auction. Attendees were encouraged to dress up in their best Halloween costumes too. All the money raised – a total of $10, 600 – goes toward the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada (LLSC).
Among many other prizes, the top raffle draws for the night were: a trip for two to Ottawa from Bearskin Airlines and; a WestJet flight for two to anywhere WestJet flies.
The event would not be the success it is without the hard work of
Christine McLaren and the generous donations of our many sponsors.
A special thanks to the catering staff who went over and beyond to ensure the event ran smoothly.
