Lisa Murray

former Manager, Ontario Crime Control Commission

former Director, George Chuvalo's Fight Against Drugs

In early 2002, in my capacity as Manager of the Ontario Crime Control Commission, I retained Golden Productions to carry out AV support for a series of "say no to drugs" presentations by former Canadian heavyweight boxing champion George Chuvalo to high school students across Ontario.

Golden Productions carried out approximately 25 presentations, and consistently provided excellent service at a very reasonable price.

After leaving the OCCC, I continued to work with Mr. Chuvalo and subsequently retained Golden again in 2004 to carry out an additional 20 presentations sponsored by the Canadian Auto Workers. Again, the service provided was excellent.

Golden staff were consistently punctual, professional and often had to carry out set up and tear down under severe time constraints. In the several dozen presentations supported by Golden, we never experienced a late start or any equipment malfunction.

In 2006, I again retained Golden to carry out the AV support for a gala fundraiser to be held in May 2006 to raise funds for Mr. Chuvalo's charity. The selection of Golden was made after tendering the project to three companies. Golden was selected not only on the basis of price but also because of the innovative and imaginative ideas they presented to transform the MTCC into a 1960s era boxing arena. This included the use large screen projections for video montages, use of dry ice and dramatic lighting effects. Golden staff worked closely with us for several weeks before the event to define requirements and the evening's schedule.

The gala was attended by some 900 guests at an average $750 per plate. The gala earned over one million dollars.

After the gala, I received many calls from guests expressing their congratulations on what they felt was "one of the best events I have ever been to". I believe that much of the success of the evening was due to Golden's efforts.

I would certainly retain Golden for any event in future and highly recommend their services.
