Biz X Was There – Hoedown for Autism
Yee haw! Cogeco presented the Hoedown for Autism country dinner show on November 4, 2016 featuring Nashville-style tributes to Shania Twain, Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw, in support of Autism Ontario Windsor-Essex at the Ciociaro Club.
Media sponsors also included Biz X magazine and Windsor’s Country 95.9/92.7. Joe Garon of Turnkey Entertainment and Promotions put together a first class show. Annette Lafond thrilled the audience as Shania with Ray Darren (Chesney) and Peter Phillips (McGraw) getting the attention of all the ladies in the audience with their dance moves!
The fundraiser supported the Autism Ontario Windsor-Essex office. Their mission is to ensure that each individual with Autism Spectrum Disorder is provided the means to achieve quality of life as a respected member of society.
Although the chapter is one of the largest in Ontario, it does not receive financial support from any level of government. All donations come directly from fundraising events and the generosity of many businesses. If you would like to donate please email the Windsor Chapter.
VIP sponsors (some pictured here) included The Windsor Essex County Association of Realtors; Rafih Auto Group; Tim Hortons; Encore Mechanical & Building Services Inc. and Optimist International.
