Colliers is a proud sponsor of the 2017 Easter Seals telethon, which is broadcast live from CBC studios in Toronto. Colliers sponsored the “Corporate Hour” where our employees volunteered to answer the phones and take pledges. This year, 30 panellists from the Colliers' GTA offices volunteered for the Easter Seals Telethon on Sunday, April 9.
In our hour, we helped raise close to half a million dollars (total raised for the day was $2.8M), due in large part to the generosity of the Colliers employees, families and clients.
The annual Easter Seals Telethon
celebrates success stories, introduces new Provincial Easter Seals Ambassadors, showcases Easter Seals kids and their families, and recognizes those donors and sponsors who have helped us so much. The Telethon takes place in 6 communities throughout Ontario, including Toronto, Northern Ontario, Peterborough, Sault Ste. Marie, South Eastern Ontario and Windsor-Essex.
The Easter Seals Telethon also features various media, entertainment and sports celebrities who dedicate their time to help generate awareness for the needs of kids with physical disabilities, raise much needed funds, and say thanks to our generous sponsors.
Funds raised through the Easter Seals Telethon make a difference to over 20,000 children and youth with physical disabilities in Ontario. With your help, we can reach our annual fundraising goal and ensure that all Easter Seals kids receive the funding they need to achieve a greater level of independence and accomplishment all year round.
A big thank you to everyone for making the Colliers Corporate Hour a huge success on Sunday!
