The Rady Jewish Community Centre will honour Larry Vickar and his family at the upcoming 42nd annual Rady JCC Sports Dinner.
The entrepreneur and community activist currently serves on the boards of the Jewish Foundation of Manitoba, Manitoba Hydro, Jewish National Fund and the St. Boniface Hospital Foundation. He has worked in the automotive industry for over 40 years and is a Canadian Automobile Dealers Association Laureate winner in the ambassadorship category.
“Larry Vickar has given so much to the community, not only through his philanthropic work in more recent years, but also dating back to his early days leading a boys’ club at the YMHA [now Rady JCC],” said Blair Worb, Rady JCC Sports Dinner chair. “Larry has always been a strong supporter of the Rady JCC and the community, and we can’t think of a better person to honour on this special night.”
The dinner will be held June 19 at the RBC Convention Centre.
This year’s keynote speaker is NBA Hall of Famer Magic Johnson. Tickets can be purchased online at RadyJCC.com or by calling Maegan at (204) 477-7513.
