Find NewRoads having Fun | Boys Night Out
Hut, Hut, Hut….
On Sunday, September 22, 2013 at NewRoads Chevrolet Cadillac Buick GMC in Newmarket we were at it again.
Part of our defined culture says that it’s not only acceptable, but expected that we find ways to have fun together in the workplace. It’s also part of our written culture – defined as one of 4 pillars of our NewRoads brand – that we support our Community. So we decided to have our first ever Boys Night Out – Tailgate Party.
It was a Sunday and the day really had nothing to do with selling or servicing cars, but rather about male bonding, camaraderie and a little NFL! Big HD Screens TV’s, football, lot’s of door prizes, games, silent auction, food and BEER. Yes beer. Yes cold beer. (Yes, we had a license!)
Milestones prepared and donated all the food and it was FANTASTIC. Thanks guys! Our local Brick donated 2 lounge chairs for the day – and we auction off the “best seats in the house”. Winn’s provided us with some very cool “big boy toys” for display – new snowmobile, 4 wheeler and 3 wheeler bikes !! They were as cool as you can get !
We even had fooze ball and table tennis. The magician was awesome ! My mind is still blown by his tricks.
Most importantly besides all the fun we had – was we raised approx $1300.00 for the Kids Help Phone. With all the current challenges children face from drugs, sex, bullies, split families, abuse, etc – we felt very PROUD to help support this. Elena from the Kids Help Phone – who spoke at the function helped us really understand how critical this service is for our children and our youth.
We were also very pleased to have Newmarket Councillor Tom Vegh and Regional Councillor John Taylor in attendance. John spoke and we thank him for his very kinds words regarding our organization.
We’re already thinking about next year and how we can make it even bigger and better!
I was very proud on Sunday to be part of NewRoads – continuing to give back to our Community and participating in fun activities – like our newly branded… Boys Night Out.
