The CJ Graphics Annual Open House & Fundraiser returns for another great event celebrating their new state of the art facility in Mississauga.

CJ Graphics, an award-winning leader in the North American printing industry, opened its doors on December 1, 2017 for the latest edition of its famous Annual Open House & Fundraiser. Kicking off the holiday season with style and good cheer, the party offered a chance to gather with clients, suppliers, friends, family and industry peers, welcoming a whopping 2,000 guests spread out over 6 hour for a visit.

Along with fabulous food, refreshments, music and games, the Open House featured a few surprises, including a demo of new CJ technology in the form of a virtual party greeter featuring Jay’s lovely wife as the model. “[It was] great to see everyone from the Toronto Printing industry celebrating the season. Thanks for hosting, Jay Mandarino!” said Stephen McWilliam, partner and EVP of Avanti.

Jay Mandarino, Founder & CEO of CJ Graphics and the CJ Group of Companies, doubled as party host and auctioneer. A live auction of high-end prizes and a silent auction raised over $17,935.00, with proceeds going to the special-needs programs offered by the CJ’s SKATEPARK.

Volunteers from the Daily Bread Food Bank were also on hand for a food and fundraising drive. Guests donated 1,250 lbs. of food, and CJ matched cash donations dollar-for-dollar for a total of $3,000.00.

Along with industry friends, the party welcomed neighbourhood children and
families that use the CJ’s SKATEPARK, as well as many party volunteers, making for a true community event. Mandarino expressed thanks for all who came, especially those who donated their time, effort, merchandise and services.
