Gates is proud to become involved in this worthy fund raising initiative where the money raised remains in the local community. Gates is also donating G-Force recreational belts for the wide range of snowmobiles that are expected to be on trip.
On December 6th, 2013, at the Brantford Golf and Country Club, the Brantford Rotary Club held their annual kick-off luncheon to recognize riders in attendance as well as sponsors. The automotive aftermarket industry – “High Five for Kids Foundation” learned of Gates involvement and also generously contributed. Ray Osika, VP Brantford Operations, presented a cheque to the Lansdowne Children’s Centre Foundation in the amount of $2,500 on behalf of the High Five for Kids Foundation.
