Wahlberg in Toronto to Help Children’s Charities

This guy is really awesome, thanks Mark! Actor and producer Mark Wahlberg will be working in Toronto’s financial district Wednesday morning – and it’s for a good cause.

The Hollywood star is scheduled to be on the CIBC trading floor to call clients seeking donations for children’s charities.

“I know first-hand the important work done by charities and organizations that support kids and youth,” Wahlberg said in a press release. “As a kid, I was fortunate enough to spend my free time in the positive and nurturing environment of the Boys and Girls club.”

Wahlberg is supporting CIBC Miracle Day, an annual one-day fundraiser where CIBC wholesale banking employees and participating CIBC Wood Gundy Investment Advisors donate their fees and commissions. The initiative has raised nearly $65 million since 1984.
