Bay Street Spells It Out for Literacy
TORONTO, Feb. 27, 2013 /CNW/ - On March 6(th), Bay Street's sharpest minds
will compete against one another to raise money for Frontier College, Canada's
original literacy organization.
With SCRABBLE® players like TMX Group's CEO Tom Kloet, and CIBC's Senior EVP
Richard Nesbitt, along with journalists and Olympic athletes, the evening is
bound to be a raucous evening, all for a good cause.
Players vie for the coveted TMX Cup and the opportunity to open the Toronto
Stock Exchange and proudly display the TMX Cup at their office. CNW Group
Newsmakers will defend their TMX Cup title. Looking to defeat CNW Group are
former champions PricewaterhouseCoopers' Alphabet Soup (2008 & 2011) and the
Scotiabank Nerdiques (2005 and 2006).
Frontier College President Sherry Campbell is inspired by the continued growth
of the event, now in its 9(th) year. "It's a wonderful reminder of the value
that the corporate community places on literacy."
TMX Group's CEO, Tom Kloet agrees. "TMX Group is proud to once again be the
title sponsor of Frontier College's SCRABBLE® Corporate Challenge. We are
extremely pleased to lend support to the important cause of increasing
literacy across Canada."
This year's emcee is author David Chilton, the newest member of CBC's Dragon's
Den, and a familiar face to many in the business crowd.
One of the emotional highlights of the evening is the Deloitte Learner
Achievement Award, which was won by Tamara Rebeiro, a single mom who, with the
help of Frontier College, has achieved her goals and is now working full-time.
The 2013 SCRABBLE® Corporate Challenge, presented by TMX Group will be held
on March 6(th) from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the Arcadian Court, 401 Bay Street,
8(th) floor. To register: www.scrabblenightincanada.ca or call 416-923-3591
