Our Proudest Moments
Ron presented one of our framed easels boards to Peter White, EVP, of Dairy Queen Canada in December 2020. We updated and framed one of our easel boards in order to commemorate @dqcanada reaching $500,000 in funds raised for the @CMNcanada through our Art Easel Program. Peter and the DQ Team are extremely proud of our franchisees supporting the program. Dairy Queen has been one of our corporate partners since 2016 and have over 140 easel locations across Canada. Look out for our art easels, and consider placing a bid next time you stop in for a DQ treat!
In November 2020 reached a BIG milestone with our partner Make-A-Wish Canada . Together, we have now raised over $500,000 through our Art Easel Program to help grant wishes for children with critical illnesses. THANK YOU, Make-A-Wish for your continued support, and THANK YOU auction winners for your contributions, we could not have done this without you!
We are thrilled to announce that we have now raised $3 million for @CMNCanada as of September 2020! We are honoured to have Children’s Miracle Network Canada as one or our national partners participating in our Art Easel Program and look forward to the many successful years to come!
