After a two-year hiatus one of the summer’s favourite charity events in support of Elevation Outdoors just wrapped up its sixth year with more teams, and more money raised than ever before!
This year On The Lawn raised $30,000 for Elevation Outdoors, which is not only the largest amount raised in one year for On The Lawn powered by BDO, but also brought the 6-year total to over $130,000 in funds raised for Elevation Outdoors.
FH&P Lawyers once again was proud to support this event and entered a team consisting of seven lawyers. Our team "Law'n Order" was represented by Brett McClelland, Clarissa Lester, Dan Shea, David Horvath, Jasmine Somal, Kevin Cheung and Tanvir Gill.
“Every year this event truly surpasses our expectations for the support we receive from the community. To have a sold-out event for four weeks in the middle of the busy Okanagan summer, all to support our work of getting youth outside and active shows how amazing our community is.” Mike Greer, Executive Director at Elevation Outdoors.
The team behind On The Lawn along with the team from BDO, the event’s presenting sponsor since event conception, are excited to continue to grow this event annually to ensure there is ongoing support offered to such an important local organization.
“I’ve seen the impact of Elevation Outdoors's program and BDO is proud to be able to contribute to this organization as they make a difference with high-risk kids in our community.” Britt Vig, Partner at BDO Canada.
“We have been supporting this event since its inception and we are pleased to have raised over $28,000 toward such a worthy cause. Congratulations to the event organizers and volunteers for creating a fun and memorable experience for the community.” Mike Smith, Senior Manager at BDO Canada & Elevation Outdoors Board Member.
With participant teams, and available sponsorships selling out every year in less than a week, now is the time to reach out to the On the Lawn organizing team regarding getting involved in 2023!
