Den Bosch + Finchley is a proud sponsor of Humour Me, a charity event for SickKids Foundation in collaboration with our client, Walied Soliman. Humour Me is a an event where a group of committed sponsors, brave CEOs and Canadian and international stand-up comics come together to raise money for youth-related charities.
Just as SickKids helps children beat the odds every day, Mr. Soliman was able to beat the odds as an underdog of the stand-up competition and was awarded first place by a panel of esteemed judges. Despite describing this as one of most challenging things he has ever done, through tenacity, hard work and determination he was able to prevail just as the children of SickKids do every day with the help of events like this.
Humour Me applies a twist to the standard stand-up routine by bringing together both professional comedians and influential, high-profile amateurs to perform together. For 2017, the net proceeds of Humour Me, will be used to fund children’s mental health programs at SickKids Foundation. The hospital for Sick Children (SickKids), aims to improve the health of Canadian children by integrating care, research and teaching.

Market Street Redevelopment
Located in the St. Lawrence Market District, the Market Street Redevelopment project included three mid-to late-nineteenth century heritage buildings: 8 Market Street, 87 Front Street, and 10-12 Market Street and a new building at 118 The Esplanade. Conservation work was concentrated on the stabilization of the two-storey brick façade of 10-12 Market Street during construction of a new steel-frame structure. Work on the façade included extensive masonry repairs, the replication of second-storey wood windows, a brick parapet, and the recreation of a missing wood cornice. The ground floor was rebuilt in a modern style to distinguish old from new. A two-storey addition to the south was also constructed using red sandstone to blend with the adjacent red brick. The project extended to a pedestrian focused redesign of Market Street.
Team Den Bosch’s annual Ride to Conquer Cancer was a great success again this year. Having raised over $44,000.00 for the Princess Margaret Foundation, our riders had a great 2 days of biking, team building and lots of fun along the way. Congratulations to the entire team (from left to right), Justin Kersten, Colin Barber, Ted Jagielsky, Jay Hodgins, Robert Barber, Andrew Smith, Lynsey Tait, John Tackaberry and Daniel Kunz. Many thanks to everyone who donated to our cause.
The revitalization of three historical buildings, one new and a pedestrian focused street (a first in Toronto) is open for business. On June 4th, a ceremony was held to dedicate the completion of the block that encompasses Market Street from Front Street to The Esplanade to the visionary Paul Oberman. Please come enjoy the incredible atmosphere that emanate from these historic buildings.
