Bald Boys of Inglis Jewellers out to make campaign ‘best ever’
United Way of Colchester is thrilled to announce Paul Clark and Greg Johnston, the Bald Boys, owners of Inglis Jewellers, as this year’s Workplace Campaign co-chairs.
“The Board and staff are incredibly pleased to welcome Paul and Greg to the United Way of Colchester’s Campaign Team. As well respected and community-minded business leaders in Colchester, we know they’ll effectively lead our volunteer Campaign Team during our Diamond Anniversary this year,” says Keltie Jones, chair of the United Way of Colchester County.
“We’re honoured to be part of the United Way and the local charities it supports. We believe they make a real difference in our community,” Johnston says.
“We’re looking forward to working with the United Way and making this the best campaign ever,” Clark says.
“Anniversaries are a time of celebration, new energy and new goals. Having the Bald Boys lead our Diamond campaign will bring stunning results that will benefit our community,” says Terry Hearn, the United Way’s executive director. “Their creative and innovative ideas will help us make lasting change in our community.”
The 2013 campaign exceeded its $230,000 goal and raised $242,000 to invest in local community-based services and programs. The 2014 goal will be announced at the annual kick-off luncheon that takes place Sept. 17 at the Best Western Glengarry.
