Raymond James Donates over $60,000 to the BC Children's Hospital Foundation
On May 31, Mike Todd, Executive Director of the Raymond James Canada Foundation (RJCF), proudly presented the BC Children's Hospital with a cheque for $60,803.
Spearheaded by the Victoria branch of Raymond James, the money was raised through a variety of fundraising initiatives over the holiday season and a generous match by the Raymond James Canada Foundation. When asked about their efforts, Sybil Verch, Victoria Branch Manager, commented: "Last year alone over 2,300 kids from communities across Vancouver Island made more than 6,000 visits to the BC Children's hospital. All of our colleagues in the branch and in the families of our clients have had personal stories involving children, grandchildren or family friends who have been helped by the BC Children's Hospital. So, when we were asked, it was a unanimous decision for us to join this project."
The cheque presentation is introduced by a wonderful thank you video starring some of the inspiring children who receive care at the hospital.
A special thank you to the Victoria Branch and to all colleagues across the firm who helped raise money for this important cause.
