Celebrating our Donors: Keith Bradbury and Brenda Snow


Wow, 100 years! 100 years of dedicated service driven by the need to ensure those born with, or during their lifetime acquired, vision loss. This is also a great opportunity to reflect on the thousands of volunteers, donors, healthcare professionals and caregivers, who have contributed to the well-being of persons who are blind or partially sighted.
 
Philanthropy is best defined as a love for humankind. The main purpose is to improve the wellbeing of humankind through ideas, actions and events.
 
Keith Bradbury and Brenda Snow are two individuals who possess a strong love for humankind, giving generously purely for the benefits of others. They embody the very definition of philanthropy through their personal commitment to giving back to our community through the gift of their time, support (both in kind and financial), as well as their innovative fundraising ideas. They have had a positive impact on the lives of so many people through their commitment to making Newfoundland and Labrador a thriving, vibrant community of people. 
 
While they support many different causes, Keith and Brenda have been longtime supporters of CNIB. They regularly attend our Dining in the Dark events, often bringing with them family and friends to expand our network and help us raise awareness. Keith's business, RE/MAX United, frequently supports CNIB through sponsorship and donations, both in kind and financial. Brenda has become a good friend to CNIB through her involvement in our events. She has encouraged us to change it up and try different tactics to increase our success, such as her idea on hosting a Dining in the Dark luncheon. She was also the one who suggested a direct ask from the floor at the Annual Raymonds Dining in the Dark event, which helped increase our fundraising success. Brenda is always there to give of her expertise, ideas and time to help us make sure that our event is always top notch.
 
Together, Keith and Brenda, through their public-spiritedness, have significantly helped to further the mission and goals of CNIB, making an enormous impact on the lives of those living with vision loss in our province.
 
As we celebrate 100 years, we want to thank Keith and Brenda, their family and friends for making Newfoundland and Labrador a better place for those who are blind partially sighted.
