VANCOUVER, BC – The Vancouver Canadians and RBC are pleased to announce the 2022 debut of RBC We Care Wednesdays, a brand-new community spotlight campaign that will highlight the efforts, impact, and achievements of 10 local charities through public awareness, a ticket fundraiser and in-stadium events that showcase each charity at Nat Bailey Stadium.
“We are honoured to partner with the Vancouver Canadians to celebrate 10 incredible charities who are making such an important impact in local communities across British Columbia,” said Todd Shewfelt, Regional Vice President, Business Financial Services, RBC Royal Bank. “My Team RBC colleagues and I are extremely excited to join the Canadians at iconic Nat Bailey Stadium to support our community partners. The charities we have selected for RBC We Care Wednesdays are organizations that we have long-standing relationships with through donations, sponsorships and countless employee volunteer hours and fundraising. That’s why we can’t wait to join baseball fans at The Nat this season to thank these charities for all that they are doing to help care for our communities.”
