BLAINVILLE (Quebec), November 13, 2019 – Every year, the Fix Network family of brands comes together in each region to discuss operations, receive business updates and network with fellow operators as well as connect with insurance and supplier partners. In addition to this great opportunity to connect, the delegates also spend some time raising money for Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) of Canada. This year the Fix Network team raised $36,173!
Each regional meeting hosted across the country held a unique fundraising event specifically benefiting the RMHC which is Fix Network’s national charity partner. Not only do the Fix Auto, NOVUS Glass and Speedy Auto Service franchise strategic partners generously participate, so too do corporate staff, guests and supplier partners attending the events.
Regional Meeting Totals
- British Columbia – $5,000
- Alberta/Saskatchewan – $5,000
- Ontario/Manitoba – $10,550
- Quebec – $13,000
- Atlantic Canada – $2,623
“Thanks to the generosity of our franchise strategic partners as well as meeting guests, we surpassed our total from last year by over $7,000,” said Alexandra Zalec, Vice President of Marketing for Fix Network Canada. “We are very proud to partner with RMHC as their commitment to keeping families close while their children receive medical treatment at nearby hospitals is so inspiring. They assist families in many communities where we operate and this local support is very important to us.”
The funds raised at the regional meetings is just a part of the efforts that continue throughout the year. The Fix Network team also volunteers hundreds of hours at Houses across the country, donates a multitude of’wish list’ items and raises tens of thousands more dollars for the organization.
