This year marked the third that BWS Manufacturing rallied to support the local Relay for Life event in support of the Canadian Cancer Society. The team assembled trying to think of new ways to raise money early in the spring. We were able to bring out some new options and raise some excitement in the meantime. Our team gave away a pair of tickets to a Montreal Canadians game that included accommodations. BWS would like to thank Russell Metals for their sponsorship of the grand prize. Among the crowd favourites were a draw for a fire pit as well as a mosquito smoker made by the BWS welders.
This year, wewere made aware that there was not a food vendor at the event so our team really pulled together in making curly fries and selling them at the event. Popcorn, pop also accommodated extra fund raising with homemade doughnuts in loving memory of Rossella Shaw. These doughnuts were Rosella’s specialty and we were happy to honour her. Our own Mark Reid entertained at the track as well as the survivor dinner with singing.
Team BWS feels great about their participation and interaction in this event as we were able to raise just over $3000.00 for cancer research and the support of locals going through a battle. As an added feature, our new ADG Ultra Low Pro trailer doubled as the main stage at the event.
