Manitoba Blue Cross Employees Raise over $44,000 for United Way

November 20, 2013

Manitoba Blue Cross employees once again demonstrated the depth of their generosity and compassion for the community by raising over $44,000 for the United Way of Winnipeg during this year's fundraising campaign. Following a $50,000 contribution by Manitoba Blue Cross, the grand total donated to the United Way was close to $100,000!

The United Way Committee did a fabulous job raising awareness and engaging their fellow colleagues by planning a number of fun events that took place over the week of October 4 to 8. Their efforts were clearly successful because a whopping 89% of Manitoba Blue Cross employees participated in the campaign and made a donation.

Along with a mouth-watering Sandwich Making Competition and an O Solo Mio Pizza Party, the week included an early bird and wind-up raffle for a day off with pay, daily surprise draws, casual dress, dress in red and white day, and thank you gifts for making a giving decision.
