Reena Foundation Receives $180K Gift!

On February 22nd, 2017, Reena Foundation received an incredibly generous gift of $180,000 from the Robbins Family. As a lifetime Leaf’s fan, Monty Robbins has brought 60 Carlton St. and 11 Stanley Cups back to life in his basement. Monty dreamed about the day when he would meet his sports hero, Darryl Sittler. Reveling in the dream that one day, his favourite player would make it to Maple Leaf Gardens and sign his wall. Monty’s wish had come true. Darryl graciously joined Reena Foundation for the cheque presentation and autographed the wall in Monty’s basement, dedicated to him. Darryl reminisced about his time as a Toronto Maple Leaf, the crowd was in awe. The original pledge for the donation was $90,000. The Robbins Family was so touched by the experience that they doubled the gift. A portion of the gift will be directed towards the purchase of a wheelchair accessible van. The Family will direct the balance towards another important initiative.
