Employees at Nordia's Rouyn-Noranda centre once again played a big role in supporting the 19th annual telethon of La Ressource pour personnes handicapées de l’Abitibi-Témiscamingue/Nord-du-Québec. Our 18 volunteers and guests solicited donations between 12 pm and 6 pm. In total, $6,715 was collected. Snacks, donuts and coffee and a pizza dinner were offered to support our volunteer team throughout the day. A big congratulation to our three champion collectors of the day:
- Stéphanie Beaudoin: $1,250
- Sylvain Charron: $1,065
- Joannie Champagne: $865
All in all, La Ressource raised over $471,705 to support its work. Many celebrities participated in the event and among those who dropped in to encourage the Nordia volunteers were Isabelle Cyr, Gabriella, Gaith Boucher, Yves Marchand, David Jalbert, Laurence Doire, Charlie Cool and Christian Sbrocca.
Thanks to everyone who worked so hard to make this event a success!
