After another incredible event, the R&B Team would like to thank each and every person that donated, sponsored and attended the 4th Annual R&B Gala!
Being able to support two charities this year was possible because of the support from each and everyone of you. This event would not be at all what it has become without the high attendance we continue to achieve each year!
100% of the proceeds raised by the R&B event are donated to the selected charities!
We applaud you!
Thank you so much!
The R&B Team
Established in 2006 by Brennan Rumford and Cam Burch, the R&B Charity Christmas Gala has made an impact in the lives of people in South-Western Ontario by hosting three successful charitable galas.
The event evolved from the idea to throw a semi-formal bash for their close friends as a way to celebrate the holiday season; however, this idea alone seemed somewhat lacking. It was then decided to donate all funds raised at the event to a selected charity. One hundred people attended the 1st annual event in 2006, which raised a total of $1,500.00 and hundreds of canned goods for the Forest Food Bank. To the surprise of both Cam and Brennan, the event was a complete success!
Year two saw a new venue, Kimball Hall in Forest, Ontario, and was definitely a step above the first year with donations from twenty local individuals and businesses. This event raised money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation® Southwestern Ontario and included live music, a silent auction, a late lunch, and many great door prizes. Over 250 people of various ages attended this formal event and were welcomed to a gorgeously decorated hall. Over $4,000.00 was raised to help grant a local child's wish.
2008 marked the event's third year, and the R&B Charity Christmas Gala had again raised the bar. It was held on December 19th at Kimball Hall and received support from fifty local businesses. Over 300 people attended the 2008 event and compiled a total event donation of $9,500.00 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation® Southwestern Ontario.
On December 18th of this year, Brennan Rumford and Cam Burch will be holding the 4th Annual R&B Charity Christmas Gala. The event will be held at Kimball Hall in Forest from 7pm to 1am. Proceeds from the event will again benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation® - Southwestern Ontario, as well as a second organization – Connected in Motion.
100% of gross funds raised by this event are donated to charity!
"Bringing together a community of people for an evening of fun, as well as providing an excellent venue to donate to a great cause"
