In 2018, Canadian Mattress Recycling donated over $200 worth of silent auction prizes to the Forum of Women Entrepreneurs’ fundraising gala. We offered our recycling services for this important cause supporting female entrepreneurs.
The Odium Brown Gala
The Odium Brown Gala, where our donation was given, featured three businesses started by women. At the event, they competed for the grand prize: $25,000. Tickets for the event raised money for the charity.
Businesses Squiggle Park, Flytographer, and AVA Technologies pitched their business in front of an audience. In the end, Flytographer took home the $25,000 prize. All in all, the event raised $75,000 for charity.
