OttawaStart reader Rev. A. McKee asked: "Where does Max Keeping get his ties?"
Max's collection of ties comes from virtually everywhere: (kids) the Children's Miracle Network, Save the Children; (fashion) Vernini at St Laurent, Holt Renfrew; and some others are gifts from viewers. The Sens ties are from sensations, Montreal Airport gift shop, and a Toronto tie company which made some early in the life of the franchise (purchased by McGarry Funeral Home people).Related: Ottawa Television Guide
The ties generally get worn for awhile on air, and are then donated for Charity auction.
The Ottawa Sun did a mini-profile of the ties last summer.
Now go tie one on!
