Our 2019 Golf Classic celebrated 21 years. Founded in 1998 this annual tournament is a sell-out and has raised almost $850,000, impacting the lives of thousands in our region. Our 2020 RVH GOLF CLASSIC scheduled to take place on Friday June 12, 2020 at the Renfrew Golf Club has been POSTPONED until the Fall of 2020 due to the COVID-19 situation. We will update with the new date in the next few weeks.
Tree of Lights
For over 25 years, the RVH Foundation Tree of Lights has kicked off the holiday season. Our community tree is lit in memory of our loved ones and brings the true spirit of the season in a colourful tribute.
Every year our Tree of Lights campaign features the talents of a local artist that graces the Tree of Lights card. This year’s artwork was created by Dweyne MacNabb and truly captures the magic of the season through the eyes of a child.
Friday December 6, 2019 was our annual TREE of LIGHTS ceremony where we lit the festive tree in the Town centre with “Lights of Love” purchased in honour of/in memory of loved ones. Our tree was encased with “lights of Love” and the community celebration was a family event with a kids’ hour with outdoor games and activities and photos with Santa. Special thanks to the 4H Community Club, Santa, Jessie The Backyard BBQ for the delicious smores, Donald Carty of Tim Horton’s for the hot chocolate, J&J Chocolate Sensations for the chocolate treats, our RVH dietary department for the festive cookies and to Jon Pole and the team at MYFM for the Giving Tuesday Match program that certainly enhanced the tree with lights. IT was the perfect event to kick off the holiday season.
