WINNIPEG, Man. — Maxim Truck and Trailer raised more than $7,000 for cancer programs through its annual barbecue May 15.
This year marked the seventh year that the company has raised money for charity through its annual barbecue. To date, the events have raised more than $50,000. The funds raised this year will go towards the CancerCare Manitoba Foundation’s programs.
Doug Harvey, president of Maxim, said “Our charity events receive great support from Maxim employees, suppliers and customers. It’s encouraging to see such support for organizations that focus on improving the lives of children and adults in our communities.”
Guests attending the barbecue were treated to a live jazz performance by the University of Manitoba Jazz Orchestra, who performed atop a flatdeck trailer.
