Raymond James, one of North America’s leading full-service investment dealers, is showing their heartfelt generosity for the community, having reached a fundraising goal for an integrated youth clinic twice as fast as they expected. The company originally made a two-year fundraising commitment to Foundry Kelowna for $50,000 but ended up surpassing the goal – raising $50,140 in just one year.
The money raised by Raymond James will help provide early intervention and better access to care for youth, and their families, so they can live their best lives possible.
“Our signature fundraiser Christmas in November has raised more than $194,000 for local charities during the last four years,” explains Brendan Willis, Branch Manager for Raymond James Kelowna Corporate. “This past year, Foundry Kelowna was selected as our charity of choice to receive this event’s proceeds. We know that mental wellness affects people from all walks of life and by supporting Foundry Kelowna we are helping dramatically change the delivery of these essential services for youth and their families.”
