Organizers couldn’t have asked for a better fall day when they held their Korn for Kids fundraiser on Sunday. The event was held at the Empire Theatre to raise funds for Ronald McDonald Toronto. The 7th annual event went off without a hitch. There were a lot of new volunteers and more of them than in past years which helped keep the corn roast moving and the donations coming in. Reynald Brisson was please to say that for just the Korn for Kids event itself they raised a little over $4,000. and the fundraising isn’t finished.
A letter campaign started this week for corporate donations. Although, anyone can make a donation. They can drop off cheques to the Empire Theatre made out to the Ronald McDonald Toronto and it will be sent. Official receipts will be issued for donations of $15. and over. The letter campaign runs until Nov. 30.
There are still tickets available as children’s playhouse, they will be available at Valu-mart this weekend. The draw will be made October 31. Brisson is very happy with the assistance of the community in making this yearly campaign so successful. Donations helps Ronald McDonald Toronto provide a safe and welcoming haven for families from Northern Ontario and the coastal communities who have children who require medical care in Toronto.
