Synnex Canada’s Share the Magic goes virtual

Mark Hardy, vice president of product management at Synnex Canada

Last year, Synnex Canada held its first-ever Share the Magic Gala, formalizing the distributor’s longstanding support of a pair of charities for kids in this country. But this year’s gala will look very different, and more hands-on for attendees, says Mark Hardy, vice president of product management at Synnex Canada.

In this edition of the podcast, we talk to Hardy about the plans for this year’s event, and how listeners can still get involved with the gala and auction on Nov. 24.

We discuss:

  • the history of Share the Magic and Synnex’s charitable efforts, both in Canada and in the U.S.;
  • the youth charities that Share the Magic supports, including a very close personal connection stemming from former Synnex CEO Kevin Murai;
  • how gala attendees across Canada, and for the first time, including the U.S., will cook together this year with the help of a professional chef; and
  • how this year’s auction will work, and why there’s still time to get involved, as either a buyer or as a donor.

All this and much more in this edition of the Podcast.
