McLean & Dickey Ltd. is pleased to announce our successful application for a grant from the Definity Insurance Foundation as part of our fundraising efforts for The Lighthouse, Orillia during the Coldest Night of the Year event. It took a while, but this morning we were able to present a cheque for $5000 to Linda Goodall, Executive Director of the Lighthouse and Jen Jermey, Development Administrator on behalf of Definity.
The Definity Insurance Foundation is dedicated to making a difference in the lives of Canadians, prioritizing strategic funding of underserved causes that have a measurable effect on the quality of life of individuals and our communities. Grants are made to registered charities that address the health and environmental impacts of inequality through community-based services, advocacy and awareness initiatives, and research and knowledge development.
With this additional funding from Definity, we are so thrilled to be able to announce that the total money raised by McLean & Dickey’s two teams of CNOY walkers is $12,851! Kudos to all the hard work that our dedicated employees put into this fundraising effort to help support the incredible work that The Lighthouse does for our community.
