Unifor Local 88 Shocks the Crowd at 2018 Bid for Kids Sake!
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ingersoll, Tillsonburg & Area held their 2018 Bid for Kids Sake & Battle of the Hors D’Oeuvres at the Lions Auditorium in the Tillsonburg Community Centre on Friday November 23 sponsored by Unifor Local 88. The event was a huge success with approximately 250 people in attendance bidding in a live & silent auction, and enjoying an extremely tasty hors d’oeuvres battle including 7 local restaurants and catering companies.
The event raised just over $40,000 for Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring programs, exceeding the goal for the 2018 event. The biggest surprise came from Unifor Local 88 who blew the crowd away by bidding $25,000 in the live auction on a dozen cupcakes donated by Big Sister Denise who is also a CAMI employee. The crowd went wild and many jaws dropped in the auditorium as everyone was in awe of this incredible donation!
A huge thank you goes out to all sponsors, donors, attendees, and especially Unifor Local 88 for making this year’s Bid for Kids Sake & Battle of the Hors D’Oeuvres one that will never be forgotten! What an amazing community we live in!
