CanCham was thrilled to host its inaugural Canadian Rugby Fundraiser for Rugby Canada, coinciding with Rugby Canada's participation in the Singapore Sevens. We are delighted to announce that with the generous support of attendees, sponsors and event partners, we raised over $8,300.00 for Rugby Canada!
The event began with remarks from His Excellency Jean-Dominique Ieraci, High Commissioner of Canada to Singapore, followed by remarks from Caroline Berube, President of CanCham and Sean White, National Senior Men's 7s Interim Head Coach for Rugby Canada. Next, was the much anticipated Jersey Presentation Ceremony, followed by a fireside chat with Phil Mack, National Senior Men's 7s Assistant Coach & Head Coach Pacific Pride, Canada Sevens. The afternoon concluded with a successful live and silent auction!
We would like to extend our gratitude to event MC, Mr. Todd Handcock, President for Collinson, Asia Pacific and Head of the Governors' Council for the Canadian Chamber of Commerce Hong Kong, who's passion for Canada and rugby helped pull this all together.
We are deeply grateful to all those who attended and donated to this worthy cause. Special thanks goes out to our event sponsors and partners, who helped make this event a success! We look forward to making next year's event even better!
