Taking one on the chin for charity


pie throw

CIM past president Garth Kirkham took “the world’s most expensive cream pie” to the face recently while participating in the Teck Celebrity Pie Throw supporting the BC Children's Hospital Foundation. 

"I was truly honoured to take a pie from my industry partner and competition, Karina Briño of MABC.  I am so proud of the mining industry - we all come together and step up for a great cause, with purpose and support!" said Garth.

The 2016 Pie Throw took place on Thursday May 12, 2016 at the Vancouver Art Gallery where participants tossed pies in the faces of mining industry leaders all in support of BC’s sick and injured children. 
One hundred per cent of all funds raised as part of the Pie Throw go to support the new CAUSES Clinic at BC Children's Hospital.

Total Raised: $1,193,254.31
