Connecting with Employees & Neighbors at Queen City Ex

August 07, 2014   |   ShareThis

Attracting nearly 200,000 attendees each year, Regina’s Queen City Ex festival is one of the most anticipated celebrations of the year. Now in our fourth year as the presenting sponsor, we are once again proud to support employees, family, friends and neighbors during the five-day event.

From July 29 to August 3, Mosaic supported community celebrations, charity programs and entertainment events. Here’s a round-up of fun events from the festival:

Employee Food Drive and Queen City Ex Pass Giveaway

New this year was the Queen City Ex Mosaic Employee Contest. In Regina and Belle Plaine, our employees were encouraged to bring non-perishable food to support the Regina and Moose Jaw District Food Banks. With each donation, employees were entered for the chance to win a VIP Concert Package and Pass Packages to the Queen City Ex. In total, employees collected two barrels of food and $100 cash for the Food Bank’s. Belle Plaine’s Justin Funke was the grand prize winner who gets to meet the band, “Down with Webster.”

Experience the Ex Tickets for Kids Program

More than 40 charitable and community organizations received 2,600 passes to attend the Queen City Ex as part of Mosaic’s Tickets for Kids giving program. Groups involved included Sask Abilities, Big Brothers of Regina, Sofia House, Regina Transition House, Salvation Army, YMCA, Canadian Mental Health, Wascana Rehabilitation and My Aunt’s place.

Mosaic and CTV Morning Live also surprised two Habitat families – the Eberle’s and the Johnson’s – at their homes with special QCX packages that included VIP concert tickets, passes and food.

Additionally, Mosaic provided all Regina Habitat families with Daytripper passes, which totaled seven families already in their homes, plus an additional nine that will be moving into Habitat Plains once the project is complete.

Fireworks and Parade

Mosaic’s once again led the parade to kick off Queen City Ex on Tuesday, July 29. Members of the Mosaic Regina Office Social Committee were on hand to showcase the company’s sparkling float as it made its way through Regina’s streets. The evening came to a close with a fireworks display in Wascana Park. Mosaic blankets were made available to families to take part in the take in the light show.

Flip for Hunger Family Day

The final day of the Queen City Ex was Mosaic’s Flip for Hunger Family Day to support the Regina Food Bank. Volunteers dished-up free pancake breakfasts and handed out fair passes for every non-perishable food donation or monetary gift. More than 10,127 pounds of food $2,013 in monetary donations was collected.
