Cantrex raises $10K for Make-a-Wish PDF Print E-mail
Written by HGO Staff   
KLEINBURG, Ontario (13 July 2009) - Cantrex hosted some 160 folks from across the industry this past Wednesday for the final of its two annual golf tournaments at the Copper Creek Golf Club here, raising $10,000 for the Toronto chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation in the process.

In early June, Cantrex's Quebec division held its annual golf day and raised $10,000 for Le Refuge des jeune de Montréal, a shelter helping distressed and homeless young men.

The winning foursome included Darren Stevens, John Cerisano, John Stevens and Bill Neil from Stevens Omni, a floor covering distributor based in Mississauga, Ontario.

Proceeds from this event have been used to support Make-A-Wish for the past ten years. The Toronto-based organization grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. To date, Cantrex has donated a total of $120,000.
