More than 1,600 guests attended CJ Graphics’ 33rd annual season’s greetings open house party and fundraiser on December 6 at its 240,000-square-foot facility in Mississauga, Ont., helping to raise over $28,000 for CJ’s Skatepark and The Mississauga Food Bank through live ($12,725) and silent ($13,209) auctions, as well as food and monetary donations.

This year, the annual event raised roughly 1,430 pounds of food and $780 in funds, which was matched by CJ Graphics to total $1,560. Meanwhile, $1,143 was raised for the Skatepark Foundation.

Dubbed the world’s largest not-for-profit air-conditioned indoor skatepark, CJ Skatepark serves children and youth in the community including those with special needs. President and CEO Jay Mandarino, who served as the auctioneer during the party, even changed out of his suit to ride the skatepark with the kids.

Live machine demonstrations ran throughout the evening, and attendees had the opportunity to take home posters and laser die-cut template sheets that could be assembled into tree ornaments without glue or tape.
