A big THANK YOU to everyone who came out to Power Unit’s Christmas Wish on December 20 at Chimera Lounge. Thanks to your generosity and big hearts, we were able to raise $2,000 and dozens of toys for the CP24/CHUM Christmas Wish! Because of you, families and young children in need were able to celebrate a joyous and warm Christmas.

The event was a major success as Power Unit Youth Organization officially launched itself as a standalone non-profit organization, run for youths by youths. We would like to express our gratitude to Councillor Alex Chiu and our many community partners for taking time out of their busy schedule to show their support for PUYO and for the community. As well, thank you to the wonderful staff at Chimera Lounge for the delicious cocktails and yummy snacks.

Power Unit Youth Organization would like to wish everyone Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year! May all your wishes come true in the new year of 2010!

This past Tuesday, several members of Power Unit had the opportunity to visit the CHUM FM studio to chat with Roger, Darren & Marilyn. Yes, the 104.5 CHUM FM to which your and your mother’s radio dials are permanently tuned.

Jane, Christy and Donna went live to air at 6:35AM—they woke up at 4:30!—to promote Power Unit’s Christmas Wish, the official Power Unit launch party and Christmas fundraiser in support of the CP24/CHUM Christmas Wish. The girls were greeted with a warm welcome and enthusiasm rarely seen that early in the morning.

We’ve got the audio clip you have all been waiting for! Prepare your ear plugs because we were asked to sing Christmas carols, and somehow we turned it into a mash-up of Jingle Bells and Jingle Bell Rock. And no, it did not sound as cool as it reads. Actually, maybe I should make you wait for not waking up early to support us…

For now, take a look at the blog post written by producer Tom about Power Unit’s visit on the Roger, Darren & Marilyn blog:

Many thanks to Roger, Darren, Marilyn, Tom, Stefanie, and Loretta for all your encouragement and generosity.

Similarly, we really appreciate your support as well! If you haven’t bought a ticket or RSVP’d for Power Unit’s Christmas Wish yet, do it now! Only four more sleeps!
