For the past 15 years, Brantford Power employees have organized an annual fundraising BBQ to support PSS. The event honours the late Dan Ritchie, a founder and long-time supporter of Participation House who was also a long-time employee of what is now Brantford Power. Ritchie had cerebral palsy and while he may have found it tough going sometimes, friends say he never let it get in the way of enjoying life to its fullest.
To date, Brantford Power has raised over $55,000, which was instrumental in the installation of a Snoezelen sensory stimulation room, and recent renovations to our Bell Lane location.
The BBQ is an employee-driven initiative supported by the company and attracts a huge crowd. Community members can enjoy delicious barbecued food as well as a raffle which, in the past, has included prizes such as gift cards, restaurant certificates, golfing accessories as well as tickets to see the Toronto Raptors, the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Toronto Blue Jays.
