Kitchener, ON — A fundraising dinner and silent action to help raise funds for the Skills Canada Ontario Bursary is planned for March 7, 2006, at the Delta Hotel in Kitchener, Ont.

Skills Canada Ontario is a non-for-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of skilled trades and technologies as viable, first choice career options to young people in the province of Ontario.

Funds raised at the event will assist students from across Ontario to advance to the Canadian Skills Competition in Halifax in May.

The event includes a silent auction, dinner and a speech from the Hon. Perrin Beatty, president and CDO of Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters (CME).

A posthumous award will be presented to the family of the late Klaus Woerner, founder of ATS Automation Tooling Systems Inc., Cambridge, Ont., for his commitment to excellence in the skilled trades. After battling cancer, Woerner passed away Feb. 7, 2005, at the age of 65.

Tickets for the fundraising event are $125 per person or $950 for a table. For information or to make a donation to the bursary, call Carolyn Hartlen at 519-749-9899, ext. 231, or e-mail carolyn@skillscanada.com.
