RBC Wealth Management
RBC Wealth ManageMent (RRC WM) is committed to enriching the communities where its employees and clients work and live. Pledging a percentage of its pre-tax profits as charitable contributions, RBC WM demonstrates leadership in the communities it serves every year. In 2010, RBC WM gave more than $3.2 million to charitable organizations throughout the U.S.
Last November, the RBC WM Baltimore and Hunt Valley Complexes joined forces with Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed to host a night that eight students will never forget.
When the Booker T. Washington middle school students arrived at the Hyatt Regency Baltimore for the event, they were welcomed and treated to a special pizza dinner. The students knew they were there to be honored for their academic and leadership achievements, but had no idea what the night would bring.
Clients and friends of the RBC WM Baltimore and Hunt Valley Complexes were invited to the event, entitled “A night of Giving with Ed Reed”, which also included a silent auction. Additionally, RBC WM made a $15,000 donation to Reed’s Eye of the Hurricane Foundation (www.edreedfoundation.org), which is focused on helping, improving and expanding the lives of our nation’s youth.
The culmination of the evening came when school community coordinator Scott Johnson spoke about why the eight students were chosen as the special guests of honor. He also explained the positive impact that the Eye of the Hurricane Foundation has made at the school. Following Johnson’s remarks, Reed elated the deserving students by surprising each with a brand new bicycle.
