Callout to ambitious PR students! Here’s a volunteer opportunity you don’t want to miss.

McGill BA graduate Kaylann Knickle is recruiting volunteers to work during an upcoming high-profile charity event!

Here’s what Kaylann has to say about the event:

*   This non-partisan event is called Fleurons Glorieux, held on November 8, 2011.

*   700-900 people are expected to attend.

*   Confirmed attendees include political leaders, military brass, celebrities and leaders in the business community.  The four event co-chairs are Paul Desmarais Jr. (Power Corp), Pierre Beaudoin (CEO, Bombardier), Marc Parent (CEO, CAE), Louis Vachon (CEO, Banque Nationale)

*   The evening will be a celebration to thank the members of the Canadian Armed Forces who have reached the end of a long combat mission in Afghanistan.  All funds raised will be donated to Canada Company, a non-partisan charitable organization that serves to build a bridge between business and community leaders and the Canadian military.

Pretty impressive! So, here are three good reasons for PR students to volunteer for this event:

Getting to experience the insider’s view on event planning and media relations; having the opportunity to network with high-profile individuals and other PR students and professionals; and last but not least, helping out a great cause!

To apply for a volunteer position, please forward your CV and a short paragraph about yourself to Kaylann Knickle (
