YEAR IN REVIEW: TONIK CANNABIS CONTINUES INVESTING IN BRANTFORD COMMUNITY
Tonik Cannabis marked another year of working with community partners to help Brantford flourish
BRANTFORD, ON | December 21, 2022 – Tonik Cannabis had another great year of helping invest in the community where they live and work.
Tonik was voted Brantford’s Best Cannabis Store in Community Votes Brantford, which marked a major milestone in their first year in business. This summer, Tonik hosted a community gathering to thank members for their support in their first year. The event included raffles and a free BBQ to mark the occasion.
Tonik is passionate about building a strong community in Brantford. The team showcased their passion for doing good work within the community by sponsoring several events throughout 2022.
“We’re so thankful to everyone in the Brantford community who has embraced our store and our family,” says Tonik owner Anthony Horvath. “We love getting to work so close to home, and we want to do what we can to help Brantford continue to thrive.”
Our team marked National Day for Truth and Reconciliation by wearing orange shirts in honour of Indigenous peoples and donating to the Woodland Cultural Centre, an organization supporting residential school survivors and their families.
In October, Tonik sponsored a tribute concert with bands Fleetwood Nicks and Practically Petty. All funds raised went towards important children’s and youth programs by Lansdowne Children’s Centre Foundation.
Tonik helped support the family of Scott Hutchison, who passed away from cancer this year. There was a musical tribute held in his honour in November, which raised $7,000 for his wife, Lori Jewer. The evening featured performances by Scott’s bandmates and other musicians.
Throughout the month of December, Tonik accepted donations at the store for the Brantford Food Bank. Food insecurity is a major issue in Brantford and across Ontario, as people continue to deal with rising food costs and inflation.
Tonik Cannabis also extended its reach across international borders this year. Tonik’s own Connor Horvath has embarked on an initiative to bring $750 of school supplies and hygiene products to a local school in a small community just outside of Punta Cana. Connor felt strongly about helping those abroad in need and was supported by Tonik.
Tonik Cannabis will continue to work with local organizations into 2023, with a goal of helping Brantford thrive.
