Aptos Cares: Montreal Colleagues Give Back Big

As a follow up to their pizza fundraiser on US Thanksgiving, the Montreal Aptos Cares team held a bake sale and a 50/50 raffle today to raise money for charity. Combined, the two days raised $2,612.

Michael Holland (pictured below with Ayat Dekis, our chief raffle seller and the winning ticket) was the winner of the raffle, and he generously donated his winnings ($850) back to charity. The team will donate $1700 to West Island Mission – a local charity – to support their Holiday initiatives, and $850 to help former colleague Jacki Tescione with unexpected medical bills.

Well done, as always Montreal!
