Donations to Beneficiaries
The Steering Committee of the RBC Gran Fondo announces 2019 donations to our beneficiaries: Texas Medical Center Orchestra, National Multiple Sclerosis Society, and Montgomery County Food Bank. This year the net proceeds from the event were $45,000. We will donate $20,000 each to the TMCO and NMSS. The MCFB will receive $4,000 and we will once again award a $1,000 college scholarship to a graduating senior from Montgomery High School.
Through the generosity of our sponsors and a successful raffle we have been able to contribute to the effectiveness of our beneficiaries despite having to cancel the event due to significant weather threats. With this year’s donations, we have now contributed nearly $500k to our beneficiaries since the inception of this event.
We are an all-volunteer organization and ALL of our net proceeds go to charity – we thank everyone for their support of these very worthwhile causes: a community orchestra helping to bring music appreciation to many hospitalized people through free performances in hospitals; the National Multiple Sclerosis Society helping to find a cure/provide assistance to those struggling with the debilitating and often deadly disease that affects people of all ages from all walks of life and the Montgomery County Food Bank helping so many families by providing food for their families.
