And We're Off! Kicking Off the 2017 Campaign in Grand Style

News Date

This morning, the Business Cares Food Drive, in support of the London Food Bank, kicked off in Grand style at Western University's London Hall. 

The students from The Grand Theatre's High School Project production of Evita kicked off the festivities by singing their own version of the 12 Days of Christmas, which was followed by speeches by campaign chair Wayne Dunn and other guests. The kickoff ended with two teams of students (captained by Dunn and Glen Pearson) competing to gather the most food whilst singing Walking in a Winter Wonderland.

Did you miss the excitement? Don't worry -- we've got you covered. 

We have a video of the students singing the 12 Days of Christmas, photos from the event, and a brief video of the competition all available on our Business Cares Facebook page.

The campaign is just starting and we need your support. Register your business today, volunteer to help at one of our upcoming events, and/or make a donation to the cause. The Business Cares Food Drive supports the London Food Bank and all the organizations it, in turn, supports.

Don't forget that tonight is our first Be a Fan, Bring a Can event at the Budweiser Gardens during the London Knights' game! And if you're attending the opening night performance of A Christmas Carol at The Grand Theatre tonight (and all throughout its run), you'll also have the opportunity to donate to the campaign!

We look forward to exceeding our last year's total of 325,000 pounds worth of food and we know that it's all due to the generosity and support of Londoners!
