Debits & Credits Accounting & Bookkeeping was pleased to be a part of the 2016 Rainbows Gala in which EVERY PENNY raised at this event was used for Rainbows for All Children Canada-the largest non-profit organization committed to helping children and teen grieve and grow after loss. (www.rainbows.ca). The Gala took place on May 14th at the Tangle Creek Golf and Country Club.
Rainbows forms partnerships with schools, faith communities and social services agencies so they may establish grief support groups and help vulnerable children. Rainbows builds the confidence and self-esteem of hurting children, improves communications, prevents destructive behaviours, and improves academic performance. (Mission Statement: www.rainbows.ca)
The Gala was started around 5 years ago to raise money and awareness to give back to the community for this great cause. Renee Galloway, owner of Debits and Credits, attended the event citing “the gala is something that makes a real difference. It turns society around and every penny counts.”
The Gala event raised over $34,000 that will go towards helping over 1000 kids go through the program with no cost according to Jackie Ramler, the event coordinator of the event.
