ADVANCE BUSINESS SYSTEMS AMERICAN THANKSGIVING FOOTBALL CLASSIC BENEFITS CHILDREN’S AID SOCIETY
Advance Business Systems continued its support of Southwestern Ontario charities with the 26th annual “American Thanksgiving Football Classic.” The event was held Thursday, November 23rd at the Windsor Yacht Club.
The event brings in donations from Advance Business Systems, local businesses and national companies throughout the community. This year the proceeds benefit the Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) of the Windsor-Essex Children’s Aid Society.
YAC promotes advocacy for youth in care of the Children’s Aid Society as well as fundraising for other at-need charities they choose to support. Over the last 8 years, YAC has grown from 5 youth around a table to a group of 20 plus young people, ages 12 to 20 who receive services from the Children’s Aid Society.
The specific project that will be impacted by the Advance Party is, Creating Connections for Life. It will provide YAC with technology such as a smart board, laptop, video camera and related equipment that will allow them to expand their presence at local, provincial and national meetings and events where they have a presence at the table. It will in many cases bring these activities to them.
The YAC group is an inspiration to all of us and are examples of how every child can aspire to his or her dreams with the support and encouragement of those who believe in them.
The “American Thanksgiving Football Classic” sponsors included: RE/MAX Preferred Realty Ltd. Brokerage, Ricoh, Unique Tool & Gauge, Rafih Auto Group, Vehicle Venture, Windsor Spitfires, Walkerville Wealth Advisors and more.
