  • RMC Charity Event The Docks

    April 2007

    Event Location : Toronto, Ontario

    Risk Management Counsel of Canada, RMC, held an impressive Gala Charity Casino event at the “Next Level” at the Docks, Toronto on April 19th, 2007 to mark their 10th anniversary.

    RMC, a national network of law firms specializing in serving the needs of the insurance industry, decided this year to break with its traditional seminar approach and hold a gala celebration. The event and the setting were a hit and even the weather cooperated as the sun shone on the first beautiful spring evening of the season. Many of the guests commented on the spectacular location and stunning views of Toronto.

    Not only did RMC celebrate its anniversary with their clients but it used the opportunity to give back to the industry that has supported its work over the past 10 years. RMC felt that the natural partner for this event would be WICC, Women in Insurance Cancer Crusade.

    Michael Butler, Chair of Chapter & Industry Relations, attended the event and spoke on behalf of WICC. After describing the wonderful work of WICC, Michael took receipt of the $10,000.00 donation cheque from RMC President, Domenic Venturo, and thanked all who attended for their generous support. RMC was also very pleased that Lyna Newman, Secretary & Treasurer of WICC and Steve Wilson, Chair of Media Relations for WICC, were able to attend the gala.

    Guests at the event were treated to an abundance of delicious food. The entertainment included a live ice carving show, a magician, a jazz band and Elvis and Marilyn impersonators. Of the many door prises given out that evening, the all-inclusive trip to Las Vegas was clearly one of the highlights.

    The event was a tremendous success and RMC wishes to thank WICC for their support as well as the support of all who attended this milestone event.
