Supporting the Roulant
At the Roulant, we dream of Montreal as a well-fed and close-knit city. From the cabbage patch to the compost collective, canning tomatoes to cultivating mushrooms, delivering fresh vegetables to calling each client, this dream is manifested in many ways by countless people every day. Help us continue connecting people of all ages through food. Our goal for the 2017 Gala is to raise $25,000!
Again this year we are offering two types of tax-deductible* tickets to the Gala, which include a complimentary drink and raffle ticket:
- A $100 general admission ticket
- A pay-what-you-can ticket
What does pay-what-can mean? It means that your presence at this event and your contribution of any size helps us reach our fundraising goal! We ask that you contribute what is meaningful to you based on your financial ability. If you aren’t sure what to contribute, consider what you would pay for a fantastic night out for food, drinks and music with friends.
*In accordance with Canadian Revenue Agency’s regulations, we can issue tax receipts upon request for contributions of $15 or more above the value of the ticket, which is $50. So for a $100 ticket, you will receive a tax receipt for $50. However, for contributions less than $65, we cannot issue a tax receipt. Note that tax receipts will be issued in the name of the person purchasing the tickets.
Sponsor a client or a community member
If you are unable to attend but want to support the fundraiser, we invite you to sponsor a ticket for one of our meals-on-wheels client-members and their volunteer buddy, or to enable a guest with limited income to join the celebration. Simply contribute to the “Donate a ticket” option below.
