Odlum Brown returns as diamond sponsor

Odlum Brown Limited is the diamond sponsor for the Comox Valley Community Foundation's annual fundraising gala for the next three years.

Odlum Brown Limited is returning as the diamond event sponsor for the Comox Valley Community Foundation’s annual fundraising gala for the next three years.

“We count on the funds raised from the gala event to offset the foundation’s administrative costs,” said gala committee chair RaeAnn Hartman. “Having this kind of long term commitment from a major sponsor is a wonderful gift.”

Odlum Brown was founded 90 years ago and has always had a keen interest in the community. Many decades ago, one of the firm’s founders, Tom Brown, was greatly involved with the Vancouver Foundation and members of Odlum Brown continue that tradition in the Comox Valley.

“We are very proud to uphold the values and beliefs of our founders by embracing the spirit of philanthropy,” said Janine Martin, branch manager, director and associate portfolio manager of Odlum Brown Limited in the Comox Valley. “Supporting the Comox Valley Community Foundation provides a wonderful opportunity to carry on the vision and traditions that are a part of Odlum Brown’s culture.”

Carrying on Odlum Brown’s longstanding commitment to support the community is of utmost importance to Martin. “I can think of no better way of doing that than by supporting the CV Community Foundation.”

The Comox Valley Community Foundation provides donors the opportunity to help a broad range of local charities, without choosing just one. It supports needs as the needs arise, today and in perpetuity.

The annual CV Community Foundation fundraising Gala takes place Oct. 19. For information about the CV Community Foundation and other gala sponsorship opportunities, go to www.cvcfoundation.org.
