2018 Crimson & Gold Gala

Each year we celebrate our donors, grantees and our community at our Crimson & Gold Gala Fundraiser. The funds raised at this event go towards our operational costs and ensures that more money goes back into the much needed services and programs offered by the Comox Valley's non-profits.

We are now SOLD OUT!  

 Our gala would not be possible without the generosity of these great Comox Valley businesses and organizations:

At Odlum Brown Limited we are proud to continue our commitment as the Comox Valley Community Foundation Gala’s Presenting Sponsor for the sixth consecutive year. Our close connection to community foundations began decades ago with one of our firm’s founders, Tom Brown, who was deeply involved in creating the Vancouver Foundation, among many other initiatives in BC. This year, the Odlum Brown Courtenay Branch is celebrating 20 years serving clients in the Comox Valley. Much has changed over the years with technology, industry regulations, market conditions etc., but it is very comforting for clients to know that Odlum Brown remains true to its core values and commitment to integrity. Providing unbiased portfolio investment advice, an environment for open and clear communication and a singular focus to diligently do our very best for clients is what makes Odlum Brown stand out from the crowd. We very much strive to support local charitable initiatives while exceeding our client’s expectations for investment management.
