2019 Charities of Choice
This wonderful program helps children ages 4 to 12 become familiar with the hospital and staff prior to surgery. Their hands on exploration of commonly used medical equipment, and a tour of the operating and recovery rooms gives them an opportunity to express themselves to clinical staff and to ask questions they might have. They are provided with a teddy bear to take with them along this journey and who better can offer unspoken comfort than Dr. Bear!!
Charities Supported Since 2003
Over the life of the event, the Markham Rotary Ribfest has raised over $200,000 for the following charities:
We are truly grateful to be partners with Markham Sunrise Rotary Club for their commitment to the community and for helping to end youth homelessness. 360°kids has benefitted both from their financial and volunteer efforts over the past 2 years towards our Mill St. Project to provide affordable housing options for youth.
