OCGA has established a Charitable Promotional Fund

 OCGA has established a Charitable Promotional Fund to build greater awareness of the impact of Charitable Gaming across communities in Ontario. This fund was established and continues to be funded by direct contributions from charities and non-profits.
Over the years, there have always been initiatives to promote the ongoing services and programs that funding from Charitable Gaming enables to happen. These include media events and campaigns, messaging about products, and other visuals. Now more than ever with these challenging times and increased competition, it is critical to drive awareness of this important aspect of the sector.
The goal with the fund is to create a consistent look and feel to charity messaging across the province and over time, to create greater public awareness. In order to develop these materials an extensive exercise was undertaken to provide a solid foundation on which to build.
The OCGA is proud to present:
Going forward, this brand name and logo will represent the grassroots impact charities and non-profits that fundraise through Charitable Gaming have in communities across Ontario.
There are several features in this logo:
● The house is representative of the community. The peak of the house pointing up, is the positive contribution Charitable Gaming makes to communities and the people who live there.
● The heart symbolizes the love, care, and empathy that Charitable Gaming proceeds provide.
● The brand name ‘Charitable Gaming. Community Good.’ is curved and creates an embrace around the logo symbolizing compassion, friendliness, and inclusion.
We look forward to working with all our charities and non-profits to drive further awareness and support for Charitable Gaming.

Carabram donates to local foodbanks

Unfortunately, Carabram was cancelled this year because of Covid-19. The organization decided it wanted to help others by making donations to two of our local foodbanks Regeneration Community Outreach and United Sikhs.

Carabram weekend July 10,11,12, 2020

Except for Covid-19, this would have been Carabram’s 38th annual event, the second oldest festival in Canada.

Carabram has presented a unique festival that recognizes the cultural diversity in our city. We want our patrons to experience the world through culture, great food, music and dance.

So here is a taste of what happened in 2019.

 

Carabram 2020, Brampton’s Multicultural Festival, cancelled

Organizers of Carabram, Brampton’s Multicultural Festival, say this year’s event, planned for July 10, 11, 12, is cancelled because of Covid-19.

“For the past 37 years, Carabram has presented a unique festival that recognizes the cultural diversity in our city. We want our patrons to experience the

world through culture, great food, music and dance. We have hundreds of volunteers across multiple venues, who work tirelessly to share their culture every year,” says Carabram President Angela Johnson.

“Considering the crowds that attend Carabram could present a huge risk in potentially spreading the virus, we believe our priority must be the health and safety of our many visitors and volunteers and so, we have no choice but to cancel this year’s festival”.

We would like to thank all our sponsors, partners, vendors, suppliers for their support over the past years and look forward to once again working together in 2021.

On behalf of Carabram our thanks and gratitude to all front line workers, emergency services, grocery stores, pharmacists and everyone who continue to work to keep our community safe and well.

To give back to the community, Carabram will make a donation to two local food banks Regeneration Brampton and United Sikhs.

“It is our hope that we will come out of this stronger and more united,” says Johnson.
