Shorcan Charity Day Raises $7,000 for Vision Research
Yesterday, we helped TMX Group close the market for the 20th Shorcan Charity Day!
For the last 20 years, Shorcan Brokers Limited has donated one day’s profits to charities, including Fighting Blindness Canada (FBC).
Today, we’re thrilled to announce that FBC and the crucial vision research we support will benefit from $7,000 thanks to Shorcan Charity Day! This brings Shorcan’s total contributions to FBC to a whopping $92,661.
Thank you, Shorcan, for your continuing generosity and support of FBC and over one million Canadians living with blinding eye diseases.
