Balpex and Sunshine – A Dream Partnership
In 2014, Balpex Inc. was looking for a charity to support that was not only committed to a worthy cause, but one that was also reflective of their organization. When they discovered Sunshine, they knew it was the perfect fit.
“It jumped off the page that Sunshine looked and felt like Balpex,” says Giselle Chartrand, President of Balpex. “Our organization is all about supporting entrepreneurs in realizing their own dreams. We hope to support Sunshine for a long time to come.”
A Canadian member-based organization of independent distributors of cleaning and hygiene, industrial and food service packaging products, Balpex holds an annual conference for its members. For three years, the conference featured a silent auction with proceeds going to Sunshine. In 2017, they took their fundraising to the next level – ziplining over Niagara Falls.
Thanks to the entrepreneurial and giving spirit of Balpex members, Balpex has now raised a total of $53,399 in support of Sunshine. We are truly grateful to Balpex for becoming part of the Sunshine community and look forward to the future!
