Great Billboard Rescue
The United Way Great Billboard Rescue’s presenting sponsors Investors Group and Lowerys are happy to announce that thanks to the hard work of event participants & the generosity of those who pledged to rescue them off the scissor lifts, the event has raised an impressive $141,362. These dollars will help the United Way’s 29 Funded Agencies to support thousands of local people who are facing challenges and hardships in their lives and need a little help to get through these difficult times. This support is changing lives and building a strong community!
In addition to the excitement on the scissor lifts, there was also a BBQ at the event sponsored by Re/Max First Choice Realty Thunder Bay Limited with all proceeds benefiting the United Way. Despite the cold, windy weather many people came out for a delicious burger & pop and to cheer on the teams who braved the heights to help our community.
The United Way and event organizers wish to thank the many participants, volunteers, sponsors and donors who took part in Great Billboard Rescue. It is truly remarkable to see our community coming together year after year to support one another and have a great time at this event. It was also great to see teams using social media sites like Facebook and Twitter to share the fun with their networks and create increased awareness for the United Way.
Thank you to our many sponsors who help make this event possible:
