Tenant Co-ordinators Golf Tournament

On Thursday, September 18, 2014 the Tenant Co-ordinators of Canada raised $17,000 at their Annual Golf Tournament at Remington Parkview Golf & Country Club in Markham. This is the 7th annual tournament with a portion of the proceeds being donated to the Bob Rumball Foundation for the Deaf for a grand total of $104,750!
 
A lot of hard work, generous sponsors and donors contributed to the success of the day. The tournament hosted a full house of golfers, an outstanding silent auction, beautiful venue and a great day of fun. It certainly was enjoyed by all. Thank you to all sponsors, donors and golfers who supported the tournament. Proceeds will go to the Bob Rumball Foundation for the Deaf.
 
A special thanks to Bevin Wellwood, Pat Corvetti and the Tenant Co-ordinators of Canada Golf Committee!
 
Special Note: The Bob Rumball Foundation is proud to announce that The Tenant
Co-ordinators of Canada has now reached the “Visionary Circle” on our Donor Appreciation Wall. 
 
 

  
Savour the Flavour Event in Milton
 
We are very excited to announce that our Savour the Flavour Fundraiser on Saturday, April 12, 2014 was a huge success!  We raised over $26,000 and all proceeds will go towards the construction of a mini-putt. With the successful opening of “The Range” Driving Range and Golf Centre, the Bob Rumball Associations for the Deaf in Milton has decided to expand this adventure by enhancing our social enterprise to include the development of a mini-putt.  This new addition will create job opportunities for our Deaf clients and provide recreational and volunteer opportunities.  We will be welcoming our community to share in the pride our Clients take in bringing this initiative to Milton.  This is a one-of-a-kind work experience, providing multiple opportunities for personal growth. We will keep you posted about the opening date of the new mini-putt!
