At RCRG, the return of the Volunteers Are Stars Awards was, without a doubt, one of our highlights of 2018. Held at Pacific Gateway Hotel, the event was a sellout, with 250+ community members in attendance to recognize and celebrate Richmond's amazing and inspiring volunteers. It was, in a word, awesome, so of course, we're doing it again in 2019!
The 2019 Volunteers Are Stars Awards will take place Tuesday, April 9, during National Volunteer Week. They'll once again be hosted by our incredible partners at Pacific Gateway Hotel and, like last year, will combine a stand-up reception with a seated awards ceremony.
The format allows for guests to mix, mingle, and network while enjoying a delectable selection of appetizers and refreshments. The awards ceremony, meanwhile, turns the spotlight on volunteers, so they can - quite literally - take centre stage and be honoured for their achievements.
While our main priority is to put on a spectacular and memorable event, we're equally committed to making Volunteers Are Stars affordable and inclusive. That starts with ticket prices, which we're happy to say are the same as last year: $20 for RCRG members, and $25 for non-members.
Full event details are below, along with a link to purchase tickets. And don't forget to nominate a star volunteer (or volunteers) by the March 11 deadline! Keep scrolling to complete our online nomination form.
