Third-Party Events Help Raise Awareness and Funds for Radius!

Every year, Radius Child and Youth Services is the grateful recipient of a number of fundraising events held by amazing individuals and organizations.

Every dollar raised through these events helps to ensure that Radius can continue to provide intake, assessment and counselling, run group therapy, and conduct cutting edge research and training. Hosting a third party fundraiser or event raises valuable funds for programs and services, sparks a conversation about child abuse and inspires others to get involved.

This year, Oliver Matas, President of the Oakville, Milton & District Real Estate Board (OMDREB), chose Radius as his charity of choice. Here’s what Oliver had to say:

About a year ago, when I was President Elect and going into my presidency, I was approached by a colleague, Cheryl Tym. It was during the time I was considering the 2019 President’s Charity for The Oakville Milton & District Real Estate Board. She asked me to consider a Charity that was near and dear to her heart, Radius Child and Youth Services. As soon as I learned about the great and needed work they do for children and youth in situations of physical, sexual and emotional abuse, I was intrigued. The moment I met Margaret McConnell and visited their location I was hooked! I did not realize how important their services were to the many vulnerable children and youth in Halton and how much it was needed! Best of all, because of the great work they do, many children and youth who have gone through this program have gone on to be productive members of our society. Recently, our Real Estate Board had a Charity Golf Tournament and we managed to raise significant funds in support of Radius. We hope to add one more fundraising events in the Fall and are committed to helping this worthwhile cause, Radius.

Below, Oliver speaks at their recent golf tournament:
