MIET Committee

Sheila Wong

Sheila Wong

VP Business Development, BBW Event Staff

Founding partner of Canada’s event staffing company since 1991, Sheila wanted to give back to the community that has done so much for her professional life. So many have been affected by the devastation of a cancer diagnosis – having lost her two close friends to breast cancer and leukemia. The motivation for MIET came from a conversation at an industry reception in Saskatoon. What can be done to make a difference? Euchre was the answer!

She and her husband Jim played euchre regularly with her Mom and Dad and having lost her mom to cancer she enjoys making a contribution towards the research needed to find a cure.
