The Dave, Keith, and John Robinson families have deep roots in the Springbank community and take pride in their generous contributions to this area for many decades. This long-time ranching family is now fulfilling a dream that will allow others to share in the beauty of their Springbank ranch. The ROARR foundation is doing exactly that – sharing the family’s blessings with others that are not as fortunate. ROARR headquarters are at RiverCross Ranch, on the Robinson’s Val Vista ranch property just west of the Springbank High School. Utilizing RiverCross Ranch we will provide a ranch experience to empower children to participate in social functions, to develop life-long skills and to promote self confidence and independence. We will provide seniors the chance to participate in special events and the opportunity to experience the beauty of our ranch.
The mandate of Robinsons Outreach at RiverCross has been to facilitate opportunities and ranch experiences for underprivileged children and under attended seniors. Our facilities and programs have offered a unique country haven to create a repose and retreat from their normal circumstances of life.
We want to serve this community of folks more effectively. We want to raise the BAR (n) on what we can offer. Borrowing from the past, ROARR has planned to erect a BARN structure that will provide an enclosed but more open space for events and activities and the access for handicapped or wheel chair bound folks, rain or shine.
As we would like this to be a reality sooner than later, Our ROARR team has revved up its fundraising efforts with a planned event to take place May 28th, the day after the work of branding is completed.
This event from 12:00 -4:00pm has many components. Tickets purchased will provide entrance to an afternoon barbecue, a host of extraordinary western entertainment and experiences as well as planned fundraising activities for all ages.
Our intent is to provide a day of pleasure and fun in the country and a great start for the journey that will RAISE our BAR (n)!!
On May 28, we are hosting a ROARR “Raise the Barn” BBQ – a fundraising afternoon at RiverCross Ranch that promises to provide an afternoon of fun, music, and entertainment for every age group. From Noon until 4:00, please come and join us for the barbecue with entertainment, a bake sale, a chance to bid …
This year, ROARR was so pleased to come together with Green Drop Lawns Inc. and gather items for the residents at Clifton Manor in NE Calgary. Thanks to all of our Volunteers and sponsors for coming together to make this miracle happen!
Yeehaw! Yippee! Yahoo! Lots of fun and lots of food!!
