7th annual Gerald Marshall Centre Benefit March 2

The 7th annual Gerald Marshall Centre Benefit takes place March 2 at Michelangelo's Banquet Centre. Tickets are $60 for dinner, games and a show (Banned from Heaven) or $30 for games and the show. For more information, contact Linda Marshall at 905.317.5644. The Gerald Marshall Centre for Transportation opened in February 2010 at Mohawk's skilled trades campus in Stoney Creek. Approximately 400 apprentices train at the centre annually for careers as heavy truck and coach technicians. The late Gerald Marshall founded G. Marshall Transport with a single truck in 1970 and over the next 24 years, grew the company to include 24 trucks and trailers. Proceeds from the benefit are invested in the centre and student bursaries.
