Remarkable results
BNI Success Network was the main sponsor of the “Midwinter Kitchen Concert” for the second year in a row. Members collected 10,000 pounds of food in aid of the North York Harvest food bank. With the help of Displey Food Services, Spring Air Sommex Corp (makers of Obusforme mattresses) and the Delta Toronto East Hotel, the original goal of 5,000 pounds was met—and doubled.

Pooling expertise
Abby Zotz of Two Roads Home was the mastermind behind this idea, which she shared with the other band members. Meanwhile, Andy Hall, the 2009 President of the BNI Success Network, and secretary-treasurer Chris Marcucci, pitched the idea to BNI members. The group’s diverse resources and expertise contributed to the event’s success.

Even in a snowstorm, people came, bringing cans of food and grocery bags of donations. Two Roads Home and Ceol Cara put on a great show, and request for tickets for next year have already started coming in. The question is what will the target be for the 2012 Midwinter Kitchen Concert?
