Max Keeping Foundation

The Max Keeping Foundation - Cornwall Edition will be hosting a special event on Thursday, May 23rd 2013 at the Ramada Hotel & Conference Centre in Cornwall, Ontario. 

This event will raise funds for the Max Keeping Foundation – Cornwall Edition, with all proceeds directly benefiting children in the Cornwall community.

Last year, the organization invested over $50,000 to support economically disadvantaged children in Cornwall and surrounding area. All of the funds raised locally go directly towards supporting local youth.

This unique “Guys Night Out” theme will offer a guy’s night of ‘pampering’ including:

  • Beer sampling from Canadian craft brewers Beau’s, Wellington, Church-Key, Hockley Valley, and McAuslan
  • Wine and spirits sampling from Philippe Dandurand Wines, Jim Beam, and Forty Creek
  • Food selection to satisfy your cravings, including a variety of meats and pastas
  • Golf stations that will test your swing (on-site golf simulator)
  • Fishing stations displaying the latest fishing gear
  • Casino station to bring out your inner James Bond
  • Prizes and auctions
  • Networking/Socializing with special guests and local business & community supporters

Doors will be open at 6:00 p.m. and - for the price of admission - attendees will have their fill of drink and food, golf and fishing stations, car displays, on-site massage station, and more.
 “Using the local Mother/Daughter fundraising events as inspiration, we’ve decided to host a ‘Guys For Kids’ event that will support a wonderful cause while providing local guys (and gals) with a night of fun and excitement,” said Gilles Latour.  “There hasn’t been an event like this before and the buzz is building – you won’t want to miss it!”

Max Keeping will be in attendance, as well as other special guests that include professional athletes, media figures, and local business and community supporters.

Open to All
The event is open to both men and women - all are welcome to attend to help raise funds for a great cause.
