Payne Transportation employees open their hearts and wallets for local charity at annual awards gala.

At the end of November each year, Payne Transportation celebrates its annual awards gala dinner and dance.  

For the past three years, the gala celebrations included a prize auction to support a local Winnipeg organization called Siloam Mission. Siloam Mission provides meals, clothing, and hope services to Winnipeg’s impoverished and homeless.

Prizes ranged from gift cards to hockey tickets to a big screen TV and many of the items were donated by Payne’s customers and suppliers.  This year’s event raised $2500, bringing total donations to just over $7500 in the past three years. 

Tom Payne, President states “We believe in the positive results that come from being a good corporate citizen and supporting local charities is something we have always done and will continue to do”.

 The funds raised from this year’s gala will be presented to Siloam Mission later this week.Prize Auction table 2016
