Preferred Insurance & Partners hit a huge milestone this year by raising $72,000 for Childcan!
The annual drive for Childcan produced off-the-charts results thanks to the commitment and generosity of more than 100 business partners. The goal had been set at $50,000 for 2019 following huge success and growth over the past few years. But the goal was blown out of the water this year!
The peak of the drive is the massive ‘Turkey Bowl’ event, which serves as a thank you to business partners and supporters and is also a big fun day to celebrate our joint achievement. Since the event became a charitable initiative supporting Childcan eight years ago, the grand total raised has now surpassed $400,000.
“We are amazed, honoured and extremely grateful for the outstanding support that we receive,” says Peter Carr from Preferred Insurance. “The Turkey Bowl is a special day for our business partners, as we invite them to connect with us on a mission to raise money for Childcan. They are an amazing organization that has captured our hearts, helping families navigate emotionally and financially during battles with childhood cancer.”
The biggest transformation of the event came from partnering with BELFOR Property Restoration as the Signature Event Partner. This partnership has substantially helped take it to another level, and Team Preferred is very thankful for their continued support and partnership. The event this year included special features and appearances from McClelland Premium Beers featuring Erdinger & Stiegl, Beckham Brothers Flooring / Great Floors, Shell Canada, Classic Rock 98.1FM and Mike Winia, World Champion Master Chainsaw Carver.
“The Preferred Insurance Turkey Bowl is a fun day with a special purpose, and it’s proof that many businesses and people joining together can accomplish something truly outstanding,” says Carr.

Wawanesa Insurance – $15,000
Gore Mutual Insurance – $10,000
Enterprise Rent-A-Car – $5,000
Byron Roofing – $2,500
