Intelex Rocks Out in Support of Movember at the GTA Tech Leaders Concert Series!

Whew! What a show! The Intelex house band, The Kings of Strachan, braved the stormy weather last night to rock out in support of Movember. Mo Brothas and Sistas from Toronto tech companies flooded The Phoenix Concert hall to raise money for the face of men’s health at the GTA Tech Leaders Concert Series.

Kings of Strachan kicked things off, and in true Intelex form, were eagerly welcomed by a crowd of blue. While the rest of the city hibernated from the November snow storm, a school bus full of Intelexians geared with branded bandanas, sweat bands, guitar picks and drink cozies attended the event to support their colleagues and of course, the cause. Other bands featured were KPMG’s “Bucket List” and the event headliner “God Made Me Funky”

Aside from showcasing the internal talent of these companies, the GTA Tech Leaders Concert Series provides the organizations with an opportunity to raise some money for a great cause while networking with other professionals in the industry.

Thank you to everybody who contributed to the event. The evening was a huge success that Intelex was proud to be a part of! Just over a week of Movember left bros, grown on!
