Seniors Day & Supporting “Bowling with the Stars”

By: Heather @ 1:20 pm

seniors

October represents a lot of things to many people. For some, it’s the official start of autumn, for others it means summer has run its course. For others, the season brings senses alive: time for thanksgiving, pumpkin spice this and that, apples, the smell of burning leaves…etc. However, there is something else that October brings that we might not all be aware of: National Seniors Day! Yes, October 1st is the day where we Canadians honour the seniors that have helped construct our country and continue to help out in the community and society.

At Westmount Moving and Warehousing we do many things and are involved in many aspects of what goes into a move. With this being said, we also have services that tailor to seniors and understand how to best conduct a move. We recognize that seniors facing a move are often stressed by the idea of leaving their family home and starting a new phase of their lives elsewhere. These moves also may involve multiple parts; for example, extra deliveries to adult children, or storage of goods as a result of downsizing. Recognizing that the experience may be daunting for our senior clientele, we take extra care to prepare our moving professionals to work with seniors. This includes special training of sales consultants and our crews to address the particular needs of seniors. Our fully-uniformed and courteous professionals will put seniors at ease with the process and make their transition to a new home easier. Aside from tailoring our moves to suit our senior clientele, we also stay very involved in our local community and try and give back whenever we can.

On October 27th 2013, the Alzheimer’s Group Inc (AGI) is having a charity fundraiser called “Bowling with the Stars” where all the proceeds go towards Alzheimer’s research. This event is being held at Laurentian Lanes and the concept it to team up and bowl with the stars from sports and media in a spirited bowling extravaganza. It is going to be fun afternoon when more than 200 bowlers including Olympic and Professional athletes from the Alouettes, Canadiens and many more. Westmount Moving and Warehousing is proud to be donating to such a special cause and we hope you take advantage of this National day and apply it to everyday!

Flash mob raises $4,000

Westmount Moving laced up against the CHOM/CJAD/Virgin 96 Mighty Yuks Hockey Club

Westmount Moving staff took on the Mighty Yuks in a hockey game March 10 to raise funds for the Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation.

By Susan Schwartz, The Gazette March 24, 2013

MONTREAL — Hockey-playing employees and friends of Westmount Moving laced up against the CHOM/CJAD/Virgin 96 Mighty Yuks Hockey Club in a March 10 charity game at the Lower Canada College arena in Notre-Dame-de-Grâce to raise funds for the Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation.

Soon after the puck had dropped, more than 120 Westmount Moving friends and family members entered the arena, flash mob style.

“The main goal of this surprise was to raise awareness and collect donations for the children’s hospital, and we did,” as Audrey Gilbert of Westmount Moving wrote to Applause. “A total of $4,074.65 was raised through this flash mob in one day!”

The money was raised a few ways: Each hockey player was responsible for raising a minimum of $125, people paid $5 apiece to be part of the flash mob and donations were collected at the arena. A 50/50 draw raised $264, which meant $132 for the foundation.

The Mighty Yuks Hockey Club is in its 20th season of playing hockey and giving back to the community. Westmount Moving has been part of the event for a decade.

Flash Mob

By: Heather @ 2:32 pm

Last Sunday Westmount Moving played a charity game against The Mighty Yuks from CHOM/VIRGIN/CJAD radio.

The Might Yuks play every Sunday to raise money for the Montreal Children’s Hospital. This year marked our 10th year playing the game and we wanted to do something special. So we organised a flash mob. Over 130 people stormed the arena and made for an afternoon that all the players on the ice will never forget.

Watch the video below. We think you will like it.

Please feel free to share it with friends and family that might be interested. A huge thanks to the Mighty Yuks and all those that participated to make this into such a memorable event. We raised over $4000 for the Children’s Hospital on that day alone!

Congratulations to our Tour de Force riders and Volunteers!

By: Heather @ 1:45 pm

Last month saw the successful start and completion of the nearly 400Km bike ride from Toronto to Montreal. The Tour de Force is an initiative that was started as a means of raising money for Canada Company who provides scholarship funds and children’s camps to the children of fallen soldiers.

This year, the Tour de Force had 50 bikers including roughly 15 Canadian Forces members who also took on the challenge. We are pleased to hear that participants were able to complete the ride, and all safely returned home from their expedition. Westmount Moving has been a great contributor to this initiative every year since it’s inception. This year, the Westmount team supplied 5 bikers and raised well over $42,000 for the cause. This is a great achievement and we are looking forward to beating our record next year!

The Westmount team rarely passes up an opportunity to give back to the community and to help those in need. The company and its employee’s volunteers are proud sponsors of both the Share the Warmth Foundation and the Children’s Wish Foundation, and are always looking for new ways to help other great organizations.

On behalf of the entire company, congratulations to all participants on a job well done!

Raise the Roof

By: Heather @ 11:24 am

Westmount Moving was proud to be a major sponsor of the Raise the Roof! Fundraiser on August 24th , 2012 to raise money for a new roof on the Ormstown Fairground Arena.

The arena was built in 1912 and was designed to host a variety of events. Its current major use is during the Ormstown Fair.  The building can be used for other events, however, the poor condition of the roof prevents some groups from renting it due to the leaks.

On August 24th, the Beatles tribute band Day Tripper rocked the fairgrounds and brought the entire community together in a fun way to contribute towards the roof repair.  It was a great night and a very successful event.  Joe Gagnon, who grew up in the Chateauguay Valley, has fond memories of the Ormstown Fair, which was (and still is) an event not to be missed in the area and wanted to do his part in preserving this important local landmark.
