Maxim Truck & Trailer had over 600 guests at its charity BBQ this week, raising more than $16,500.
WINNIPEG, Man. — More than 600 people dropped by Maxim Truck and Trailer May 29, contributing a total of $16,500 for charity.
Maxim said this year’s barbecue set a new record for funds raised in a single event.
“This year’s large selection of raffle prizes really helped us attract more people and raise more funds for charity,” said Steve Young, vice-president of parts at Maxim Truck and Trailer and chief organizer of this year’s event. “We owe a great deal of thanks to our vendors and suppliers for their generous support.”
All funds raised will go to CancerCare Manitoba’s Challenge for Life program. A seven-member team from Maxim has now raised more than $48,000 for this year’s campaign, which culminates in a 20-kilometre walk on June 8.
