Ask Ron Ptasiuk what he's most proud of after close to 30 years of dedicated fundraising for the Empower Simcoe Foundation, and his answer is unwavering.
"Being able to channel funds wherever I could for needed supports and services is something I'm very proud of," says Ron.
"I always put Empower Simcoe's name first and tried to pull as many levers as I could to channel funds to the Foundation."
Over the years, all that channeling and pulling levers from one of our Foundation's most
prominent champions and cheerleaders has totaled more than one million dollars, making so many dreams come true for people and families supported by Empower Simcoe.
As Investment and Wealth Advisor of Ptasiuk Private Wealth Management Group, Ron's enduring commitment has ensured the RBC Wealth Management and
Dominion Securities name is synonymous as presenting sponsor of Empower Simcoe's Annual Fashion Show and Golf Tournaments. "Helping grow Empower Simcoe's signature events,
knowing those funds raised have assisted people and families with respite, summer campership for youth, and the purchase of needed accessibility equipment is something
extraordinary," reflects Ron.
As Ron steps away from the Empower Simcoe Foundation Board of Directors, he will continue to remain close to Empower Simcoe.
"I had no idea how much my time at Empower Simcoe would give back to me personally," says Ron. "It's just been an honour and a pleasure to have worked over the years alongside
Empower Simcoe's employees, volunteers, and the people we support."
The honour has been all ours. Thank you Ron Ptasiuk.
