Dumas ROCKS for CNIB
Dumas employees sang and danced their way into the judges’ hearts on Canada Sings, taking home the $25,000 grand prize for "Lake Joe," a fully accessible lakefront facility located in the heart of Muskoka that provides a unique blend of recreation and vision rehabilitation in a safe, inclusive environment. Dumas executives were so impressed by the team’s enthusiasm and commitment that the company also gifted an additional $10,000 to the cause, resulting in a total of $35,000 in support of CNIB!

Most recently, in 2014 more than $11,000 was raised for this worthy cause.
