The 10th Annual Toromont CAT Dragon Boat Festival raised $120,000 in support of United Way York Region
On Saturday, August 17th in the beautiful Seneca College – King Campus, 26 teams from the region’s business community came together in support of United Way York Region. Under a blue sky, in a perfect summer day, hundreds of supporters and friends of United Way took part in a friendly competition of canoe racing and enjoyed family activities like the kids’ building workshop and BBQ.
United Way also announced an ambitious community goal to raise $30 million in 3 years, which will provide a helping hand in every neighbourhood across York Region.
United Way would like to thank Toromont CAT for being title sponsor for the event for the sixth year in a row. Additional event sponsors included Platinum sponsors: Acklands-Grainger Inc., IBM Canada and Seneca College, and Gold sponsor: State Farm® Canada.
