Baskin-Robbins Treats Local Youth to Raptors 905 Game in Heartwarming Community Initiative

Mississauga – In a heartwarming gesture of community support, Baskin-Robbins Canada recently treated over 70 children and youth from local Boys and Girls Clubs (BGC) to a memorable experience at the final home game of the Raptors 905 season. Hosted at the Paramount Fine Foods Centre in Mississauga, Ontario, the event was a culmination of Baskin-Robbins’ commitment to enriching the lives of Canadian youth through its Pink Spoon community program.

The children, hailing from the BGC St. Alban’s Club and BGC Hamilton-Halton Club, were invited as special guests by Baskin-Robbins Canada, marking another milestone in the company’s ongoing partnership with BGC Clubs. Since 2017, the Pink Spoon program has been dedicated to supporting youth across the country, providing them with unique opportunities and experiences.

Rachael MacKenzie-Neill, Vice-President of Development & Public Affairs at BGC Canada, expressed gratitude for the partnership, highlighting its significance in supporting young people in communities across Canada. She emphasized that such collaborations are essential for BGC Canada to continue serving its mission as the country’s largest dedicated child and youth-serving organization.

The initiative stems from Baskin-Robbins Canada’s multi-year partnership announced in November 2023 with the Raptors 905, marking the first of its kind in Canada for the iconic ice cream brand. The Pink Spoon program, funded and operated by Baskin-Robbins and its Canadian team, aims to create a world where children can savor the sweetness of childhood.


This heartwarming collaboration between Baskin-Robbins Canada and local BGC Clubs highlights the power of corporate social responsibility in uplifting communities. By providing underprivileged youth with opportunities to create lasting memories, initiatives like the Pink Spoon program contribute to their overall well-being and development. Such partnerships not only foster a sense of belonging but also inspire hope and optimism for a brighter future. As we applaud Baskin-Robbins Canada for its commitment to making a difference, let us continue to support initiatives that prioritize the well-being of our youth, ensuring they have the resources and experiences they need to thrive.
