It was a delightful surprise for me when I found out that my colleague and friend Cindy Lloyd had won BILD Member of the Year earlier this month!
Cindy (pictured here with Bryan Tuckey of BILD and Paul Golini of Empire Communites), an advertising sales manager here at the Star and BILD board member, was given the honour for her volunteerism, participation and commitment.
The Star is one of BILD’s (the Building Industry and Land Development Association) marketing partners and Cindy has helped to cement that great working relationship.
"It is such a special honour," Cindy told me. "I was totally surprised at the chair’s dinner; I was thinking about leaving early." Good thing she didn't ... she would have missed her big moment!
Cindy is a tireless organizer for the Toronto Star/BILD Race for Humanity, a raucous scavenger hunt that has participants going all over Toronto solving clues that would lead them to their next destination. The teams race not only to beat their opponents to the finish line but, more importantly, to support Hatbitat for Humanity Toronto.
