Last month, we donned our cowboy hats and laced up our boots to attend the Richmond Centre for Disability (RCD) Western Round-Up themed gala fundraiser. As the Gold Nugget sponsor, the Airport Authority celebrated the contributions made by RCD to our local community by presenting a cheque to the Centre for $5,000.
Close to 200 guests enjoyed the evening and raised $15,000 for RCD through a silent auction, a raffle, 50/50 ticket sales and donations for photos taken behind saloon doors or in a mock jail cell. All funds will be used in support of services for people with disabilities, including information and referral services, skills development, peer support and employment initiatives.
RCD focuses on promoting self-determination, capacity building and networking in order to bring more diverse opportunities to support people with disabilities in personal upgrade and employment initiatives.
