Bruce Power’s Project Management and Construction (PMC) division, along with 20 business partners, raised $100,000 for the Wounded Warriors Foundation at a black tie event at the Ritz-Carleton hotel in Toronto on Friday evening.
Nearly 500 people attended the PMC Charity Gala for Wounded Warriors, 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 our 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, veterans and their families, by providing treatment for both visible and non-visible injuries sustained in the line of duty, and we are honoured to support them year after year.”
Since it began in 2006, the Wounded Warriors Foundation has made a significant impact in assisting and improving the quality of life of Canada’s wounded and their families. 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, establishment of a hand up program, outreach programs to homeless veterans, and current initiatives to address the explosion of operational related stress injuries.
