$90K for United Way of Thunder Bay!
The United Way’s 26th Annual Great Billboard Rescue, proudly presented by Lowerys and Investors Group brought in $90,000 for the local not-for-profit organization. The largest annual fundraiser for the local organization, Great Billboard Rescue brings people and teams together in support of our great city! Proceeds will help fund programs that focus on empowering our young people, fighting the effects of poverty, and creating a healthy and strong community for us all.
Thirty-three enthusiastic teams reached out to their friends, families, and colleagues and braved the heights of the Hertz scissor lift on May 17th. Congratulations to Lowerys who once again took the title as Top Fundraising Team, and to RBC Royal Bank, who was in a close 2nd place. United Way wishes to thank the many team members, donors, and volunteers who helped to make this event possible!
