CFB Kickoff Breakfast

Shout out to CFB Kingston! This week, they kicked off their 2021 campaign with a traditional pancake breakfast. Great to see this annual event return safely and looking forward to seeing more of its kind. 

Early Epledge Successes

The campaign has seen early success with the Epledge donation system with the City of Kingston raising over $47,000 in their first day on the system and Queen’s Retirees raising over $77,000 on their first day as well. A great start to both campaigns and thanks so much for all the amazing support!
