Bruce Power’s Project Management and Construction raises $70,000 for Wounded Warriors
TIVERTON, ON – December 16, 2011 – Bruce Power’s Project Management and Construction (PMC) division, along with 20 business partners, raised $70,000 for the Wounded Warriors Foundation at a black tie event in Toronto recently.
Nearly 500 people attended the PMC Charity Christmas Gala, including 30 military couples. Two Wounded Warriors and two military heroes were also honoured, and all received a standing ovation from those in attendance. Many high-ranking Canadian military officials were also there to meet the event’s sponsors and show support for both the Wounded Warriors Foundation and our soldiers.
“Bruce Power and the Project Management and Construction division understand the importance of supporting military families, who have needs due to conditions of their service to our country,” said John Sauger, Bruce Power Executive Vice President, PMC. “The Wounded Warriors Foundation does an incredible service to Canadian Forces members and veterans by providing treatment for both visible and non-visible injuries sustained in the line of duty, and we are honoured to support them in any way possible.”
Since it began in 2006, the Wounded Warriors Foundation has been an instrument of positive change and hope for veterans and their loved ones. Its initial project established a ‘Comfort Fund for Wounded Soldiers’ while recuperating in hospital in Landstuhl, Germany, and has grown to host scores of individual support projects, such as the establishment of a hand-up program and outreach programs to homeless veterans.
