Finitec Canada and Centraide Québec and Chaudière-Appalaches had the pleasure of inviting the population to its first softball tournament "Home run for Centraide ", on June 5th of 2010.
The initiative of Finitec Canada allowed 8 companies in the region to compete in a friendly softball tournament in the St-Lambert-de-Lauzon Park. "We wanted to organize an original activity to raise funds for Centraide while joining together the population and workers in our industry, "says Caroline Rioux, member of the organizing committee.
The public was invited to encourage the participating teams while enjoying the complimentary amenities available throughout the day. Mascots, inflatable games, entertainment, music, food and drinks were available for the pleasure and appetite of children and adults.
This friendly tournament raised $ 2,672 for Centraide Québec and Chaudière-Appalaches.
Le Grand Village
Finitec Canada helps fund Grand Village, because it allows people living with a mental or physical disability to participate in camps and respites. Our donations that go towards the operation fund or capital of the Grand Village, assist in providing services of a higher level to a greater number of people with disabilities. Finitec Canada is proud to donate $ 12 500 over 5 years.
The primary mission of the Grand Village is to offer safe, adapted and enriching outdoor activities to children, teenagers and adults with physical or intellectual disorders, while offering to their families a moment of rest and tranquillity.
