Congratulations to Tony Aronson Shoe Person of the Year 2013!
Two/Ten Foundation of Canada's major fundraising event. An excellent opportunity to network with the who's who of the Canadian footwear industry in a fun environment with the common goal to raise funds to help shoe people in need. Every year, since 1988, Two/Ten Canada has recognized an industry member for his/her superior commitment and involvement in the industry. This award which is a celebration of integrity and achievement is also a major charity drive bringing together representatives of the entire industry. It is a great place to meet fellow industry members, while making a financial contribution to the Foundation.
Given the new landscape of the industry, the reduced role of industry associations while allowing the award to move forward, the Committee of Past Recipients reviewed the criteria to reflect more accurately the values outstanding candidates should possess in the new millennium. A copy of the new criteria will be published in the Canadian Footwear Journal each year in August with an invitation to the entire national footwear industry to propose nominations based on a more democratic and open selection process of adding worthy individuals to the nominations slate.
