A New Program that reaches out to help people in our community In 2006 Flashpoint Productions launched a new program called Community Connections. This program was designed to help support charities, non-profit groups, fundraisers at reduced rates based on each event in Ontario. It is Flashpoint's way of giving back to the community. Below are
some of the events that our DJ Team has participated in.

SPECIAL OLYMPICS CANADA - 2006
"I just wanted to drop you a quick note of thanks for the part you played in the success of our National Conference this past weekend at the Delta Airport West.
I greatly appreciated your support and guidance with regard to our video needs for the opening of our National Conference. It was great to be able to have you work closely with our other suppliers to ensure that all of our needs were covered off and everything would work out as planned.
The videos and music were a huge part of the success of the evening, and together with our other suppliers, you made sure the event went off just as we had hoped it would.
When you get a moment, I would greatly appreciate it if you would send me a few business cards for my files. I would be more than happy to share your contact information with any of our Chapter contacts if they should inquire.
Thanks again, I hope to have the opportunity to work with you again in the future."
