Farwell 4 Hire

May 1 - May 31

You may know Mike Farwell from his daily show on 570 News, or as the voice of the Kitchener Rangers, but you can’t really know Farewell, until you make him do your laundry. Farwell 4 Hire is back again, and Mike will be working harder than ever. Help him reach their goal of $150,000 in support of Cystic Fibrosis research. Give Mike all your oddest jobs, in exchange for a donation! Yard work, painting, whatever odd job you need done…he will do it!
