Each year Knightsbridge Robertson Surrette chooses a Charity of Choice, one that is making a difference in the lives of Atlantic Canadians. We support the Charity of Choice through a corporate donation and by creating awareness with our clients.  This year, that Charity of Choice was The United Way.  When the KBRS team exceeded its goal for The Run for the Cure in October, staff knew they had to go bigger and better than ever before in their annual United Way Workplace Giving Campaign.   With historical figures in mind, the team set a goal to double the funds raised for the United Way in the previous year.  Given that this was to be accomplished in a short 3 week Workplace Campaign, meeting the 2009 goal only 2 months after a huge Run for the Cure achievement would be no small task. Undaunted, Team KBRS responded with an astounding show of support.  On December 4th, less than 3 weeks from the Workplace Giving Campaign start date, it was proudly announced that the KBRS team had more than doubled its goal.  In fact, the total exceeded $5000 at the close of the campaign!
Congratulations, Team KBRS, on your outstanding show of support for the United Way, our 2009 Charity of Choice!
