WINNIPEG, May 25, 2018 /CNW/ - At Maxim's Charity BBQ held on May 24, 2018 in Winnipeg, a large crowd of Maxim employees, their families, customers and the generosity of suppliers helped raise $28,000 for Charity. The funds raised are a record for the long-standing annual event.
Maxim has been a long-time supporter of many charities including those funding community organizations, the arts, amateur sports and health.
All funds raised during this year's event will go to CancerCare Manitoba Foundation through their "Challenge for Life" campaign.
Maxim has 25 walkers and 35 volunteers participating in CancerCare Manitoba's annual Challenge for Life 20 Km walk on June 9, 2018. With proceeds from the BBQ, the Maxim "Team", led by CEO Doug Harvey, has now raised over $150,000 towards this year's Challenge for Life event.
"I am busting with pride," says Doug Harvey. "We raise a lot of money, have a wonderful time, and show that Maxim cares about the needs of our community."
