WICC Ontario held its 16th annual gala dinner, 'Power in Plaid', on April 18, 2012 at The Westin Harbour Castle Hotel and Conference Centre in Toronto. Feature performance for the evening was by band 'The Mudmen' [as seen in video clip below].
Always entertaining and definitely unique, The Mudmen are a blast of Celtic energy whose members are known to be characters both on and off stage. The band, formed in 1998 by Sandy and Rob Campbell (a.k.a. "The Campbell Brothers"). The Mudmen have 6 studio albums and have opened for ZZTop, The Guess Who, Biff Naked, Nazareth, Finger Eleven and many more. The Mudmen have toured Canada, U.S.A. and Europe and are best described as fun. (www.mudmen.ca)
Later in the evening, there was a presentation of cheque donation from WICC to the Canadian Cancer Society. On hand to accept the cheque for $250,000, Martin Kabat, CEO of the Ontario division of the Canadian Cancer Society reminded guests of the power that WICC has in the fight against cancer and the many advances in research his organization has been able to achieve thanks to WICC and the 16 years of support by the insurance industry across Canada. Since the inception of WICC in 1996, more than $5.5 million has been raised in Ontario alone.
