MB Sweet 16 raises $6000!

On September 29, 2011, Marketing Breakthroughs, Ottawa’s best Marketing Firm, hosted one of Ottawa’s finest events: the MB Sweet 16 {Mad Men Style}.
One of the great things about celebrating our birthday is the opportunity to thank people and give back.  Instead of presents to ourselves, we decided to give something back to  two of our favorite charities: The Caring & Sharing Exchange and the University of Ottawa Heart Institute.
We invited celebrity auctioneer, Stuntman Stu, to lead a benefit auction.  The crowd was highly entertained by Stu and we raised over $6000 in just under 15 minutes!
Thanks to the generosity of Paramount Properties (Stuart Ages), District Realty (Steve Ramphos), Valberg Imaging (Michelle Valberg) and Highlight Travel (Leslie Coates).  We would also like to thank our friend Stuntman Stu for his generosity in conducting the auction.
Check out these photos from the event!
