Reena Foundation was recently the recipient of an amazing gift of $50,000 from the Bridle Bash Foundation to sponsor the After School Program for the entire 2010/11 school year.
The BB Foundation is an amazing group of volunteers who truly make a difference in the communities in which they live and set a wonderful example of how fund raising can be both effective and efficient.
I had the wonderful good fortune to attend their flagship event this past August – the Bridle Bash – a party for 1,200 people in one of their Board member’s backyard where Burton Cummings performed and over $600,000 was raised!
Their guiding principle is to operate at minimal cost to maximize the funds that they make available to their selected eligible charities. Their philosophy is to utilize the valuable expertise of volunteers who wish to donate their time and knowledge.
With great pride, they are pleased to report that of the more than three million dollars raised to date, ninety percent of every dollar raised has gone directly to their recipient charities.
The Bridle Bash Foundation has helped numerous charities and Reena Foundation is extremely proud to be counted in as a recipient of their ongoing benevolence. It was our great pleasure then to host them for a recent visit to the Battle Centre where two of their members, David Jafine and Sharon Mimran, along with Sharon’s daughter Kailee, dropped off the cheque.
Thank you BBF!
