Ronald McDonald House BC Vancouver Invitational Golf Tournament

03-08-2016

Ronald McDonald House Charities has a long history with Coast Mountain Photography as their photographer supplier of choice for their major Ski Challenge Fundraiser. 

As their event organizer expands the scope and professional execution of their other events, she invited Coast to be a part of their major Golf Tournament as well.

On July 5th, Coast braved a rainy June-uary type experience to capture participants, sponsors, hole activations, and Ronald McDonald himself at Northview Golf and Country Club in Surrey.  After capturing all 180 golfers, Coast provided a wrap up slide show in time for Apres golf, and continued coverage of the key dinner and fundraising auctions that ensued.

Hosted by RMH BC’s Honorary Chair and Global TV news anchor Steve Darling (along with the lovely Global TV Meteorologist Yvonne Schalle), guests heard moving stories of parents deeply affected by cancer of their own children and why supporting this charity is so very important.  It’s not always what happens to other families one speaker noted, dinner sponsor and someone with direct experience Duncan Robinson of Wimbledon Financial.  A total of $125,000 was raised over the evening, and topped off by another incredible amount of $379,000 provided by McDonalds owner/operators from across Canada !  All in all it was an incredible day of generosity, fun, and the camaraderie one can expect from a high class charity fundraising event.

As a local owned and operated small business, Coast Mountain is proud of its support for various charities that do great work.  Certainly the challenge of caring for terminally ill kids and their families is an incredible undertaking a charity worthy of all of our support.  For more information on donating to RMH BC, please consider visit their website donations page at http://rmhbc.ca/ways-to-give/.
